Message for the Episcopal Churchwomen' s Yearbook— 1980-81 

from the Right Reverend Thomas A. Fraser 

Bishop of the Diocese of North Carolina 



Dear Episcopal Churchwomen: 

The participation of the Episcopal Churchwomen in the life 
and program of the Diocese, plus the leadership of the women 
in all phases of the life of the Church, are among the most en- 
couraging signs of the growth and strength of the Church in 
the Diocese of North Carolina. 

As your Bishop, I am grateful for your leadership; I am 
grateful for your support; and, I am grateful for your 
participation. 

May God continue to bless and strengthen you in your 
work. 

Faithfully, Your Bishop 



? Jr. -^x^ou^tf

IN MEMORIAM 
CATHARINE MILLER THOMAS 

Born: November 12, 1901 in Henderson, North Carolina 
Died: July 11, 1979 in Wilson, North Carolina 



Catharine Thomas was for most of her life a resident of Wilson, where 
she and her husband, Theo P. Thomas, were faithful communicants of St. 
Timothy's Church. Her four children— Mrs. Walter J. Pittman, Mrs. Harry 
W. Abbitt, T. P. Thomas, Jr., and James Miller Thomas— survive, as do 
eight grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. In addition to her 
family she devoted much time to community affairs, serving as President 
of the Wilson Council of Churchwomen, a director of the Council of 
Churches Day School, and a patron of the Wilson County Library. To her 
church, however, she gave special priority in her time effort and devotion, 
serving in nearly every office in the parish ECW, and as President more 
than once. She was a continuous member of the Altar Guild and her all- 
season flower garden was a constant source of flowers for the altar and 
parish house. Whatever was needed for the church and its programs— 
from delicacies from her kitchen to money for the soft-ball team— she gave 
unstintingly, graciously and quietly, without thought of reward. She also 
served on the parish vestry and as its first and only woman Senior 
Warden. 



In the diocese Catharine served as Chairman of Christian Social 
Relations for the ECW and as President from 1958-61. She was twice a 
delegate to the Triennial Meeting of the Women of the Church and several 
times a delegate to the Provincial Meeting of the Women of the Fourth 
Province. She served as representative of the Churchwomen on the 
Diocesan Council and on several commissions and committees. The 
service for which she is most lovingly remembered, however, was the 
understanding and counsel she gave to many persons in one-to-one 
relationships known only to those involved. She sought out newcomers 
and those in trouble to offer help; countless others sought her out, drawn 
by her good judgment, sensitivity in personal relationships and strong 
faith. Whether giving of herself, her time or money, Catharine never gave 
grudgingly, but always volunteered without any attempt to dictate or 
domineer. Most vividly of all, those privileged to have known her 
remember her bubbly good spirits and the joy with which she served, 
which came from a life overflowing with love for God, her family and 
friends, and all of God's children, even unto the last. 



Thanks be to God for His servant, Catharine. May her memory inspire 
others as she goes from strength to strength in the life of greater service. 



PRAYERS 



RENEWAL 
Almighty God, by whose Holy Spirit your children are led to acknowledge Jesus Christ as 
Lord and Savior; grant that this same Spirit may so dwell in us that we may be daily renewed, 
and manifest in our lives the Love that reaches out in blessing to all people. Empower us to 
help build up your Kingdom on earth to your honor and glory. We ask this, gracious Father, in 
the name of your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

GUIDANCE 
Direct us, O Lord, in all our doings, with Thy most gracious favor and further us with Thy 
continual help; that in all our works begun, continued and ended in Thee, we may glorify Thy 
Holy Name, and finally, by Thy mercy, obtain everlasting life; through Jesus Christ our Lord. 
Amen. 

EPISCOPAL CHURCHWOMEN 

Almighty God, our heavenly Father, bless we pray Thee, our work for the extension of Thy 
Kingdom, and make us so thankful for the precious gift to us of Thy beloved Son, that we may 
pray fervently, labor diligently, and give liberally to make Him known to all nations as their 
Saviour and their King through the same Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Almighty God, whose love reacheth unto the world's end, and who didst send Thy blessed 
Son to redeem all mankind, help us, we pray Thee, so to reveal Thy love in prayer and work 
and stewardship, that by Thy spirit all nations and people may be baptized into one body, even 
as all are redeemed by one Saviour; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

MISSIONS 
Almighty God, help us we pray Thee, to shed abroad the light of Thy church in all the world. 
Give us greater zeal for Thy Kingdom, that we may offer abundantly our prayers, our work, 
and our gifts; so that the earth may be filled with the knowledge of Thy glory, as the waters 
cover the sea, through Thy Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

CHRISTIAN SOCIAL RELATIONS 
Send us, O God, as Thy messengers to hearts without a home, to lives without love, to the 
crowds without a guide. Send us to the children whom none have blessed, to the famished 
whom none have visited, to the fallen whom none have lifted, to the bereaved whom none 
have comforted. Kindle Thy flame on the altars of our hearts, that others may be warmed 
thereby; causing Thy light to shine in our souls, that others may see the way; keep our 
sympathies and insight ready, our wills keen, our hands quick to help our brothers in their 
need; for Christ's sake. Amen. 

UNITED THANK OFFERING 

O God, who are the hope of all peoples everywhere, we thank Thee for the outpourings of 
love and generosity which have enabled us to respond to some of the world's needs in places 
far and near; guide us as we face changing times and new frontiers; keep our hearts thankful 
and our vision clear as we work to fulfill our vocation and ministry as members of the body of 
thy Son Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Accept, O Father, this joyful sacrifice of thanksgiving and praise, and bless these gifts to the 
setting forward of Thy Kingdom; that as we have gratefully received the benefits Thy bounty 
has bestowed, so we may cheerfully share them with Thy children in all the world; for His 
sake whose life and death and rising to life again were a song of praise to Thee, O Thou Most 
Holy, our Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen. 

CHRISTIAN EDUCATION 
O God, who has sent Thy beloved Son to be unto us the Way, the Truth and the Life; grant 
that we, looking unto Him may set forward the teaching power of Thy Church, to the nurture 
of Thy children, the increase of Thy Kingdom and the glory of Thy Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. 
Amen. 



DIOCESAN MISSIONARIES 
O Lord, Heavenly Father, without whom we can do no good thing, but with whose help 
even Thy little ones go forth as the mighty, we beseech Thee to prosper the work of all Thy 

missionaries, wherever they may be (and especially the work of Thy servant ). 

Grant them the wisdom to know and the strength to do Thy will, and bless them with the hope 
and consolation of Thy heavenly promises, for the sake of Thy Son, Our Saviour, Jesus Christ. 
Amen. 

COLLEGE WORK AND CHRISTIAN MINISTRIES 
We pray, O Lord, for guidance as we search for laborers for Thy harvest. May we remember 
that whatever our calling, it may be directed to Thee. Bless teachers, students and chaplains at 
all institutions of learning. Open our eyes that we may find and encourage the right young 
men and women for full time church work. In Jesus' name. Amen. 

THE CHURCH PERIODICAL CLUB 
O Lord Jesus Christ, Who art the Light of the World, pour out, we beseech Thee, upon all 
Thy servants Thy Holy Spirit of Wisdom and understanding that they may know the hope of 
Thy calling, the riches of Thine inheritance in the saints, and the greatness of Thy power to us 
who believe. More especially we pray Thee to direct and prosper the Church Periodical Club 
that in all its prayer and labor it may be enabled to make the light of Thy glory shine forth in 
the dark places of the earth. And do Thou of Thy mercy and grace establish Thy Church in the 
truth of Thy Gospel, who livest and reignest with the Father and the Holy Spirit ever One God, 
world without end. Amen. 

USE BEFORE AND AT THE TIME OF THE ELECTION OF OFFICERS 
O Holy Spirit, Whose guidance and inspiration alone can enable us to fulfill the Will of God, 
teach us, we pray Thee, the dignity of our work as churchwomen, and give us grace to choose 
as our leaders those whom Thou dost call to Thy faithful service. To those so chosen give a 
spirit of reverence in the exercise of their office, and to all of us a deep sense of our obligation 
in the discharge of every duty, to do all to the glory of God through Jesus Christ our Lord. 
Amen. 

BENEDICTION 
May the blessings of God Almighty, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, rest upon us 
and upon all work and worship done in His name. May He give us light to guide us, courage to 
support us, and love to unite us, now and forevermore. Amen. 



SERVICE FOR INSTALLATION OF OFFICERS 
For Branch Use 

The Officers and Board shall advance to the Altar rail, then the President shall say: 

Reverend Sir, on behalf of the women of Church, I present to you the 

Officers of the Episcopal Churchwomen of this parish. 

RECTOR: Let us pray. 

Blessed Spirit of God, come to these Thy servants in all Thy fullness and power. Compass 
their minds with wisdom. Fire their wills with Thy might. Melt their hearts with Thy love. 
Through Thy grace make them wholly Thine until they are lost in Thee; through Jesus Christ 
our Lord. Amen. 

Will you accept the responsibilities placed upon you, and endeavor to discharge the duties of 
leadership to the best of your ability? 

OFFICERS: We will. 

RECTOR: Will you, through private prayer, Bible study and regular attendance at the Holy 
Communion, seek to grow in knowledge of God and His purpose for you, and for the world? 

OFFICERS: We will. 

RECTOR: Will you strive by word and deed for the advancement of God's kingdom in this 
parish and beyond? 

OFFICERS: We will. 

RECTOR: Let us pray: 



Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, visit, we pray Thee, these officers of the Episcopal 
Churchwomen with Thy love. Enlighten their minds more and more with the light of the 
Gospel so that they may walk before Thee in humility, yet with a high sense of the great 
privilege of their responsibility. Save them from complacency and fear of new ways; and give 
them selflessness— patience— courage— gentleness— thankfulness— humor— faithfulness— en- 
thusiasm— wisdom. So, as they daily present themselves to Thee for renewal, may they be 
even stronger channels of Thy grace, and instruments of Thy will in the spiritual life of the 
Diocese. Amen. 

The blessing of God Almighty, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost, be upon you and 
remain with you for ever. Amen. 

SERVICE OF INSTALLATION OF 
OFFICERS FOR THE EPISCOPAL CHURCHWOMEN 

Let those who have been elected stand before the Bishop and then let him say: 
It is right and fitting that those who have been duly elected as Officers of the Episcopal 
Churchwomen, Diocese of North Carolina, should be formally received and admitted into 
their respective offices in your presence; and that we should ask the blessings of God upon 
them for their support and guidance in the performance of the duties which you have laid 
upon them. 

O Lord, save these Thy servants, 
Who put their trust in Thee, 
Send them help from the holy place, 
And evermore mightily defend them, 
O Lord, hear our prayer. 
And let our cry come unto Thee. 
Let us pray. 
Our Father... 
Direct us, O Lord, in all our doings, with Thy most gracious favour, and further us with 
Thy continual help; that in all our works begun, continued and ended in Thee, we may glorify 
Thy holy name, and finally by Thy mercy, obtain everlasting life; through Jesus Christ our 
Lord. Amen. 

Almighty God, the giver of all good gifts; give Thy Grace, we humbly beseech Thee, to these 
Thy servants who have been chosen to serve Thee in the special work for which they have 
been selected; grant unto them zeal and earnestness in the performance of their office; wisdom 
and strength to meet each day their task; and love in the doing of it; and give them vision to see 
their opportunities for service, to the glory of Thy great name and the benefit of Thy Holy 
Church, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Bless us, O God, with the vision of Thy Being and Thy Beauty, that in the strength of it we 
may work without haste and without rest; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

I receive and admit you to the office of Be faithful, zealous, sincere 

and humble in all your tasks, and may the Grace of the Lord Jesus Christ and the love of God 
our Father and the guiding fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you evermore. Amen. 

BENEDICTION 
The Father, Son and Holy Ghost bless, preserve and keep you, in your work, in your 
worship, this day and always, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 



PRESIDENT'S ADDRESS 

Episcopal Churchwomen 

Ninety-Eighth Annual Meeting, April 28-29, 1980 

Church of the Good Shepherd 

Asheboro, N.C. 



Bishop Fraser, Bishop Estill, Delegates and Visitors: 

It's hard to believe that just a year ago I was standing before you making an acceptance 
speech! Little did I suspect the great adventures God had in store for me. The marvelous 
experience of Triennial will always be a high spot in my memory. The inspiration we received 
from the glorious worship experiences and the understanding and knowledge we acquired 
from the outstanding Christian leaders will remain with us always. 

And no less valuable has been the experience, knowledge and inspiration I've gained from 
you. Visiting in your parishes and convocations is the best part of being President of the 
Churchwomen. I wish each of you could have the opportunity to see the church as one body. 
It's easy to stay in our little niche and "do our own thing"— but we are not self-contained 
units. We are an Episcopal Church and the strength and unity of the whole body working 
together is a joyful sight to behold. This was graphically brought home to me at Bishop Estill's 
Consecration. The fact that I was there and scheduled to read the Old Testament lesson was 
one of God's more surprising turn of events. To say that I was awed to find myself in such a 
company was an understatement, but as we processed into that magnificent church, all I saw 
were the beautiful, loving women and men of God, united as a family— united by their love of 
God and love for their sisters and brothers in Christ. Such love could only have been the Holy 
Spirit. 

"Manifest the Light of Christ to the World." Since this is the theme of our 98th Annual 
Meeting, it seems appropriate to look at the organization of the Episcopal Churchwomen in 
that context. 

At Spring Workshops, I asked the ladies to answer a questionnaire. I intended to use the 
information simply as a means of getting acquainted with them and the Branches. However, 
after studying the answers, I realized that the information I gleaned provided me with the 
basis of my report to you. 

It was exciting to find how many women are involved in all areas of parish life. Many serve 
on Vestries, Altar Guild, teach Church School, serve as Advisors to Youth Groups, sing in the 
choir, and serve on various parish committees. I knew Churchwomen were actively involved, 
not only in the parish, but in the community. It was apparent the Episcopal Churchwomen 
assume leadership roles in secular organizations as well as the church. You are officers in Art 
Societies, PTA, "Y," Junior League, Symphony Society, Scouts and a wide range of others. 

A goodly number are employed outside the home either full or part time. Those not working 
full time, and some that are, give many hours to volunteer jobs, working in hospitals, day care 
centers, teaching mentally retarded, witnessing to your understanding of Life in Christ. 

And, in spite of the dire predictions of the demise of the ECW organization, attendance at 
Convocation Meetings, Spring Planning Days, and the Fall Seminar was up and in many 
instances attendance was the best in many years. 

The offering of prayers and thanksgiving given through the United Thank Offering was 
indicative of our gratitude to God for His blessings so freely bestowed on us. The monetary 
offering for 1979 was over $39,000. 

Sixty-seven Branches contributed to the Missonary's Christmas Gift. Each missionary 
received $193.25— a 15% increase over the previous year. The Campbell Soup project 
continues and this past year St. Mary's School for Indian Girls received 261,300 labels! For 
these, they will receive audio-visual aids, science materials, math instruments, reference 
materials and athletic equipment. I'm sure you're aware that St. Mary's School is where 
Jocelyn Gordon teaches. 

Isn't it wonderful how one person's trash can turn into another's treasure? Those used 
Christmas cards are still being recycled by the Episcopal Church in Ituru, Japan. Nine 
thousand recycled cards were sold last year to provide funds for their building program. 

The Church Periodical Club proceeds were up 17%— our best year ever! That does not 
include the donations of subscriptions and printed matter. 



It grieves me to report that the 1980 budget was under-subscribed by $1,400, the first time in 
memory that your support for the Diocese has decreased. This necessitates a revision of the 
1980 adopted budget. Unfortunately, the cost of postage, paper, fuel and other items continues 
to rise daily. These are expenses over which we have no control and which are necessary for 
us to continue operation of the ECW. The Executive Board is acutely aware of their 
responsibility to practice good stewardship in carrying out the duties of their offices. The 
questionnaires indicated you wanted more communication and personal visits from Diocesan 
officers; this simply is impossible without increased funds. The reason we have been able to 
hold expenses down this year is because many of the officers have not asked to be reimbursed 
for their expenses. (This is not a good situation— taking a Diocesan office should not also be a 
monetary expense.) Budgetary cuts must come from the program portion of the budget, which 
is very distressing. You will see the 1981 budget reflects our experience in 1980. Many 
Branches have not increased their pledges to the Diocese in the past decade and some have 
decreased, thus causing the kind of bind in which we find ourselves today. It does not have to 
be this way. The solution to this problem is for you in the Branches to reassess your pledge to 
the Diocese. It is your pledge that enables us to give scholarships to the institutions in the 
Diocese— to St. Augustine's, to St. Mary's, to Penick Home and to the Child Care Services. It 
enables us to help feed the hungry through the Presiding Bishop's Fund for World Relief. Your 
pledge helps produce TV programs such as The Tales of Narnia through our donation to the 
Radio and TV Foundation. It enables us to provide continuing educational opportunities for 
women in the Diocese. The pledges have provided aid for a windmill in Haiti, built dams for a 
water resource project in Brazil, and many other programs throughout the world. These would 
have been impossible for any of us to do alone, but by pooling our resources, we are able to 
make a difference in the quality of life and are manifesting Christ's Light to the world. 

In the past year we joined the National Association of Altar Guilds. The information we 
receive through the national organization has proved to be very helpful, and more and more 
Branch Altar Guilds are benefitting from our involvement in the national organization. 

We are represented on the Diocesan Education and Training Committee and again this 
Spring members of that Committee conducted Workshops for us. Having the Bookstore at 
Workshops, the Fall Seminar and this Meeting is invaluable and we are very grateful to the 
Reverend Harrison Simons and his committee for providing this service. 

The Migrant Fund continues to be used and replenished. Last summer, at the time of the 
truckers' strike, the farm workers' plight was desperate. Nothing could be harvested and the 
migrants were literally without food. We're thankful that our Fund was available to help 
overcome this emergency. 

Churchwomen are involved in fund raising! The fund raiser may be a large undertaking 
involving every man, woman and child in the parish, or a small affair by one chapter or 
individual, but we all seem to "get into the act." The methods are innovative and resourceful. 
Most of the money goes out into the community, the Diocese and the world. Last year over 
$42,000 provided funds for soup kitchens, Meals-on-Wheels, Hospitality Houses, Share-a- 
Home, missionaries, and migrants. The Yearbook has a complete list of your special projects. 

At Annual Meeting in Salisbury the Churchwomen of the Diocese pledged $100,000 over 
four years to build a cottage at the Camp and Conference Center. I've always known that 
anything the women of this church decided to do, they'd accomplish! I'm truly proud to 
announce that to date you've paid to the Diocese over $31,000 toward our pledge. We must 
remember that we are committed to the total goal over a four-year period. It's not a one-time 
proposition and, therefore, this must be your top priority for projects outside your parish for 
the next three years. There will be an update on the Camp and Conference Center tomorrow. 

The information gathered in the Branch questionnaire was inspirational. But there is one 
concern that you all share. Over and over this phrase occurs: "not as many women participate 
as we would like." One reason for this may be the increasing numbers of women joining the 
labor force. There has been a committee of working women appointed to confront this 
problem. Many busy women whose schedules do not permit them to participate in traditional 
ways have needs that we must try to meet. The response from this group has been to 
acknowledge a need for fellowship with other women and a desire for a program that offers 
spiritual growth and educational opportunities. When your "free" time is very limited, you 
must be selective; therefore, it is very important that the Churchwomen offer a program worth 
the investment of that time. A day-long program is being planned for November 1 to help 
minister to the needs of these busy women. 



Of course, that is only aspect of the "numbers game." What about those women of all ages 
who either have "dropped out" or never "dropped in"? While we'd like to have 100% 
participation, that's an unrealistic expectation. Don't worry about numbers. To those who do 
participate, offer opportunity for spiritual growth through worship; offer programs that excite, 
stimulate and challenge the desire for knowledge; offer fellowship that witnesses to Christ's 
love for us and through us to each other; offer programs of outreach that minister to the least 
of God's children. 

I thank you for the love and support you have given me this year. You have been 
understanding and patient. I ask your continued prayers as we share our ministry, and 
together, seek to "Manifest the Light of Christ to the World."

Mrs. Alan Cone, Chairman of the Resolutions Committee, read the following Resolution and 
moved for its adoption. There was a second to that motion. 

RESOLUTION ON THE EQUAL RIGHTS AMENDMENT 

The Episcopal Churchwomen of Grace Church, Lexington, N.C., at a regular meeting on 
April 14, 1980, do hereby memorialize the Annual Meeting of the Episcopal Churchwomen of 
the Diocese of North Carolina with the following resolution: 

Whereas Christian theology does espouse the equality of all people, male and female, and 
Whereas the 66th General Convention of the Episcopal Church, held in Denver in September 

1979, with the House of Deputies and the House of Bishops concurring, did vote to endorse 

the passage of the Equal Rights Amendment, be it 
Resolved that the 98th Annual Meeting of the Episcopal Churchwomen of the Diocese of 

North Carolina go on record as supporting the passage of the Equal Rights Amendment. 

After short discussion, Mrs. M. E. Motsinger, Jr., moved that the resolution be tabled. This 
motion was seconded and passed. 

Mrs. Allen E. Weatherford gave a report on St. Augustine's College. Greetings were extend- 
ed by Miss Susan Ross from St. Mary's; Mr. John Powell of the Episcopal Child Care Services; 
and The Rev. Philip Brown of the Penick Home. All urged delegates and guests to visit their 
displays. 

Mrs. Phyllis Robinson, a student at UNC-Chapel Hill and a member of the "Anglican Stu- 
dent Fellowship" at the Chapel of the Cross, discussed the importance of this group involve- 
ment to the students of the college. The openness of the church facility and the people in the 
church to this fellowship program are vital, as the students have a hunger for such; and their 
needs are being met. 

The Rev. Nicholson B. White discussed the Venture in Mission Program in Haiti with a film 
presentation and discussed possible future programs for the Dominican Republic. He placed 
great emphasis on "What We Are Doing in the Name of God." 

Mrs. J. Haywood Evans reported on the Camp and Conference Center. The ECW has raised 
$31,919 to date. Because of rapidly increasing costs to original plans, the Diocesan Council and 
the Camp and Conference Center Committee are looking for alternative plans and designs. It 
is hoped that some information will be available soon. The Council will have to have addi- 
tional plans for the entire center before the future plans for the ECW cottage can be con- 
sidered. 

The announcement was made that the United Thank Offering received amounted to 
$218.26. 

Bishop Fraser gave his annual message to the churchwomen. He urged that consideration be 
given to "How can I help make someone's life whole?" The main theme of his message was, 
"We must begin by making ourselves whole, with the full realization that this may be painful. 
Internalize the Gospel, teach what we live, live what we teach." 

Mrs. James L. Godfrey presented a resolution memorializing the life of Catharine Miller 
Thomas, President of the Churchwomen from 1958-1961. She asked that it be filed in the 
minutes as a memorial to Mrs. Thomas and that copies be sent to members of her family. 

Mrs. Meriwether Clement reported for the Courtesy Committee. A copy is to be attached to 
the minutes. 

Bishop Fraser then installed the new members of the Executive Board: 

Mrs. Nathaniel Smith Treasurer 

Mrs. Ben B. Everett Secretary of Devotional Life 

Mrs. John Landi United Thank Offering Treasurer 

Ms. Mary Hawkins Secretary of Christian Ministries and College Work 

Mrs. Paul Wright Chairman of Altar Work 

Mrs. Robert Herford Church Periodical Club 

Mrs. R. G. Page, III Yearbook Editor 

Mrs. Walter Elsee Central Convocation Chairman 

Miss Alice Herring Northeast Convocation Chairman 

Mrs. Harry Stowe Northwest Convocation Chairman 



13 



Mrs. Harris announced that the 99th Annual Meeting will be held at St. Stephen's Church, 
Durham, on April 28 and 29, 1981. 

Following the singing of Hymn 568, "On Our Way Rejoicing," Bishop Fraser pronounced 
the Benediction and the 98th Annual Meeting was adjourned. 

Respectfully submitted, 



Mrs. C. Leslie Sweeney, Jr. 
Acting Secretary 



REPORT OF THE COURTESY COMMITTEE 



Bishop Fraser, Bishop Estill, Mrs. Harris, members of the clergy, delegates, and visitors to 
the Ninety-Eighth Annual Meeting of the Episcopal Churchwomen of the Diocese of North 
Carolina, meeting in Asheboro at the Church of the Good Shepherd: 

We thank the women of the Church of the Good Shepherd for their warm welcome and 
graciousness, especially their president, Mrs. Ogburn Yates, Jr., her chairman, Mrs. John 
Hager, and their many fine committees. We feel as if we have received more than twelve hugs. 

To help us manifest the light of Christ to the world, we have been challenged by the ex- 
amples of Christianity in action in the soup kitchens, in the resettlement of refugees, and the 
Irish children's program— as well as in our own diocesan institutions and Haiti. 

We have been enlightened by Sister Chris Gellings' presentation of ways to strengthen our 
trust in God; and we have been reassured by Bishop Estill that the world sorely needs that 
which Christ came to give through his disciples, then and now. 

We thank the Rev. Thomas Rightmyer, the Rev. Uly Gooch, Mrs. Reid Rich, the choir and 
the acolytes, for the beautiful evening service. 

Congratulations to Mary Harris on the completion of a successful year. She is an inspiration 
to us as we attempt to carry out her theme of "Manifest the Light of Christ to the World." 

Mrs. W. F. Clement 

Miss Almeria Gordon 

Mrs. T. P. Gholson

Episcopal Churchwomen 
Diocese of North Carolina 

We have examined the statement of assets, liabilities and fund balances of Episcopal 
Churchwomen, Diocese of North Carolina, as of December 31, 1979, and the related state- 
ment of changes in fund balances for the year then ended. Our examination was made in ac- 
cordance with generally accepted auditing standards, and accordingly included such tests of 
the accounting records and such other auditing procedures as we considered necessary in the 
circumstances. As to funds received, our examination was limited to recorded receipts. 

In our opinion the accompanying statement of assets, liabilities and fund balances and the 
related statement of changes in fund balances present fairly the financial position of Episcopal 
Churchwomen, Diocese of North Carolina as of December 31, 1979, and the results of its 
operations for the year then ended, in conformity with generally accepted accounting prin- 
ciples applied on a basis consistent with that of the preceding year. The current year's sup- 
plementary data included in Schedule 1 have been subjected to the same auditing procedures 
and, in our opinion, are stated fairly in all material respects when considered in conjunction 
with the basic financial statements as a whole.

ORGANIZATIONAL STRUCTURE 
OF THE EPISCOPAL CHURCH 



The Rt. Rev. John Maury Allin, D.D., Presiding Bishop 
The Episcopal Church Center, 815 Second Ave., N.Y, N.Y. 10017 

General Convention: The governing body of the Church in the United States. Com- 
prised of the House of Bishops and the House of Deputies, clerical and lay. Meets every 
three years. 

Triennial: The meeting of Episcopal Churchwomen held simultaneously with General 
Convention. 

General Church Program: The schedule of work adopted by General Convention to 
further the Church's Mission. 

Executive Council: The Executive body of the Protestant Episcopal Church which carries out 
the Program of the Church between General Conventions. 

Province: A number of Dioceses and Missionary Districts, adjacently located. There are 
nine provinces in the United States. The Diocese of North Carolina belongs to the Fourth 
Province, known as the Sewanee Province. The work of the province is educational and pro- 
motional. 

Diocese: A group of parishes and missions under the jurisdiction of a Bishop. The Diocese of 
North Carolina has 64 parishes and 52 missions. See the Constitution and By-Laws in this 
Yearbook for the organization of the Episcopal Churchwomen in this Diocese. 

Convocation: A number of parishes and missions within a given area in a diocese. There are 
five convocations in the Diocese of North Carolina. See the Constitution, Article X, in this 
Yearbook for the organization of the Episcopal Churchwomen in the Convocations in the 
Diocese. 

Parish and Mission: A fellowship of redeemed people doing God's work under the leader- 
ship and direction of a priest. A parish is self-supporting, whereas a mission receives support 
from the diocese. 

The organization of Episcopal Churchwomen in a parish or mission is known as a Branch 
and is patterned after the Diocesan organization. The membership is composed of com- 
municants who choose to be active members. The structure should be simple and flexible, 
depending on the size, interests, and needs of the group. 

In large parishes the Branch may be divided into smaller groups known as Chapters. The 
Chapters may have officers corresponding to those of the Branch.

EPISCOPAL CHURCHWOMEN 

History 

The first organized women's groups within the Church were called "Female Missionary 
Societies," as their purpose was to raise money for the support of missionaries. In 1871 
General Convention recommended that the women of the Church, in every parish and mis- 
sion in the land, be organized under the name of the "Woman's Auxiliary to the Board of Mis- 
sions." This was done in 1872 and for many years the chief function of organized women's 
groups of the Church was to raise money for the support of the missionary work of the 
Church. 

When the Church reorganized its administration and the National Council was set up in 
1919, it asked that the Woman's Auxiliary, instead of being auxiliary only to the Board of Mis- 
sions, be made "The Woman's Auxiliary to the National Council of the Protestant Episcopal 
Church in the United States of America." This change widened and increased the respon- 
sibilities and opportunities open to the women of the Church. 

In recognition of the fact that women were a part of the Church, not just an auxiliary to it, in 
1958 National Council created the General Division of Women's Work, the executive body on 
the national level, representing all of the work of all the women of the Church. 

Following this action the Triennial Meeting recommended "Episcopal Churchwomen" as 

the designation for the women of a diocese, and "The Women of Church," as the 

name in the parish. 

The history of women's work in the Diocese of North Carolina dates back to 1881 when the 
Diocese of North Carolina was the whole area of the state. The Rt. Rev. Theodore Lyman, 
Bishop of the Diocese, asked Mrs. John Wilkes of Charlotte to form a Diocesan organization of 
Woman's Auxiliary branches. In 1882 at the Diocesan Convention in Tarboro, representatives 
from six branches with a total membership of one hundred were organized as the Woman's 
Auxiliary of the Diocese of North Carolina to the Board of Missions, thereby becoming one of 
twenty-six organized in the national church prior to 1883. 

In April 1959 at the Annual Meeting in Winston-Salem, a resolution was adopted changing 
the name of the organization to "Episcopal Churchwomen of the Diocese of North Carolina." 
It was suggested that, for uniformity, parish branches be known as "Episcopal Churchwomen 
of Parish."

MISSIONS 

Mrs. Oscar Cranz 
3808 Bonward Drive, Charlotte 28211 

The purpose of this office is to encourage churchwomen to participate in the world-wide 
mission of the Church. 
Information and suggestions to help attain this purpose follow. 

1. Pray daily for the world-wide mission of the Church. 

2. A good policy is to divide the Branch budget 50% inside the parish and 50% outside. Give 
to missions through your Diocesan pledge. This will enable the churchwomen on the Diocesan 
level to accept larger priority projects, thereby accomplishing more in a given area. Suggested 
projects will be sent upon request. 

3. Remember especially the missionaries from the Diocese of North Carolina. Pray for 
them by name and write to them periodically. Participate in the Missionary Christmas Gift for 
both active and retired missionaries from this Diocese. The total money collected is divided 
equally among them. Please see that the check is made payable to Mrs. Oscar Cranz, Secretary 
(see address above) and mailed to her by NOVEMBER 15. 

4. By the action of the 1980 Annual Meeting, the 1981 Epiphany offering will go to Jesus 
Abbey and Archer and Jane Torrey in Korea. Please encourage your branch to seriously con- 
sider participating in this offering. Send it to your Diocesan Treasurer. 

5. Many branches have expressed interest in assigning a specific missionary to each con- 
vocation. The purpose is to concentrate their monies, prayers, etc., on one or two people and 
become more closely involved with them. Below are the 1980-1981 assignments: 

NORTHEAST— Jocelyn Gordon, The Rev. James Fortune 
CENTRAL-The Rev. Mark Boesser, Miss Rachel Wolff 
NORTHWEST-Mrs. Henry Simmonds, Miss Catherine Jones 
SOUTHWEST— Mrs. Henry Chapman, Jane and Archer Torrey 
SANDHILLS-Stuart and Everall Peele 

6. Remember that mission begins at home and extends throughout the world. Christian 
Social Relations, United Thank Offering, Church Periodical Club, College Work, and Missions 
are inseparable in that each offers opportunities for mission and ministry to people. Every 
churchwoman can participate. Please do your part to make this a successful year.

CHRISTIAN EDUCATION 

Mrs. Joel K. Bourne 
618 N. Howard Circle,- Box 1594, Tarboro 27886 

Christian Education is growth in our knowledge and experience of Christ. Thus, planning 
programs for chapter meetings in each parish should involve the women totally— should in- 
spire them, energize them, direct them to Christ and His work. The programs can be tremen- 
dously varied. WORSHIP is a primary part and can BE the program. STUDY of the Bible, Old 
Testament and New, with all the commentaries available, inevitably reveals TRUTH. Movies, 
cassettes, and film strips are invaluable aids to Bible study. DISCUSSION groups with Bible 
reading can be the program. Study of the Proposed Book of Common Prayer— its lectionary, its 
church seasons, its new services— can be the program. PROJECTS to carry on His work can be 
the program. Each chapter OFFICER can be responsible for a program on her area of Episcopal 
Churchwomen's work. So, also, can be the Diocesan officers and they are willing to come. 
NEEDS in your life, in your church, in your community can be the genesis of programs. Your 
PRIEST, senior and junior wardens, altar guild, Episcopal Young Churchmen advisors, Sun- 
day School teachers can be the program. The HISTORY of your particular parish— its old 



34 



records, its memorial gifts, its architecture, its leaders, its cemetery— can be a fascinating 
study. And, finally, FELLOWSHIP— pure fun for newcomers, the newly confirmed, for ones 
we want to thank or honor (such as our parish's senior citizens, its leaders, our high school and 
college graduates), for ourselves— can BE the program. 

The Rev. Messrs. Stephen Harris, of the Church of the Good Shepherd, Raleigh, and 
Harrison Simons, P.O. Box 194, Oxford 27565, are the diocese's own Christian Education 
leaders who can be immensely helpful to you. Mr. Simons has begun an Episcopal bookstore 
in Oxford that has invaluable resources. 



THE UNITED THANK OFFERING 

Mrs. John Landi 
Rt. 4, West Lake Trail, Mebane 27302 

The United Thank Offering is a practical day-by-day expression of thanksgiving in prayer 
and almsgiving through the use of our "Blue Boxes." The contents of the Blue Boxes are col- 
lected by each congregation during a service twice a year— on the Feast of the Annunciation 
(March 25) and St. Luke's Day (October 18), or as close to those dates as is convenient. The 
total Diocesan Offering is sent to New York. Disbursement of the National Offering is 
allocated for one year at the Triennial Meeting of the Churchwomen, and during the interven- 
ing years by the National United Thank Offering Committee. This committee is elected at 
Triennial on nominations from each Province. 

Grants may be requested by any congregation and must be approved by the Diocesan 
Bishop who has application forms. Traditionally the offering has been used mainly for mis- 
sionary projects and to support women in special areas of the ministry of the Church. Funds 
are granted only to projects for which no other money is available through any part of the 
Church budget. No administrative costs are taken at any level from the offering. 

THE RESPONSIBILITIES OF THE U.T.O. TREASURER 

PARISH OR MISSION 

1. Be thoroughly informed about the United Thank Offering. Use your Blue Box and Thank 
Offering prayers regularly. 

2. Provide Blue Boxes, envelopes and any information which may seem particularly perti- 
nent to your Churchwomen. These are available from New York and you should receive order 
forms from the Diocesan UTO Treasurer. 

3. Request time, when appropriate, for a program on the United Thank Offering, stressing 
that the United Thank Offering is a daily expresion of love and gratitude and not a special 
twice a year "collection." Filmstrips are available from Convocation Treasurers and the 
Diocesan United Thank Offering Treasurer will be delighted to help. 

4. Attend Spring Planning Day workshop. 

5. Arrange the Ingathering services with your rector or vicar. Share with him all informa- 
tion you have about the United Thank Offering. It is very helpful if he will announce the In- 
gathering ahead of time and will also announce it in your bulletin. Often he will preach a 
"Thank Offering" sermon. Ask him if you may distribute envelopes in the pews to encourage 
participation by the whole congregation. Some congregations send envelopes with newslet- 
ters. 

6. Please consolidate the offering in one check if possible and send it to the Diocesan 
United Thank Offering Treasurer immediately, made payable to "United Thank Offering." 
Late contributions may be sent at any time and will be placed in a savings account to draw in- 
terest. 

7. The Diocesan Alms Basin is available to any congregation for their Ingathering. Please 
ask the Diocesan United Thank Offering Treasurer to arrange this. 

8. Do not hesitate to ask for any additional information. Many Episcopalians, both clerical 
and lay, really do not understand the spiritual and practical essence of this offering. Do not be 
afraid of repetition— those who understand will appreciate it; those who do not, may learn. 



35 



CONVOCATION 
Keep UTO films and mail them to branches on request. 

DIOCESAN 

1. Be available to Branches to help them learn more about the United Thank Offering; at- 
tend all Diocesan ECW Board Meetings, conduct workshops, keep in touch with provincial 
and national representatives to acquire needed information. 

2. Receive Ingathering monies from branches and send to the National Treasurer; keep ac- 
curate records of each church and send an annual financial report to the ECW Diocesan 
Treasurer, and general reports for the Annual Meeting, Yearbook and The Communicant. 
Send spring and fall letters to branches with news, reminders and information regarding In- 
gatherings. 

3. Cooperate with the Diocesan ECW President in planning The United Thank Offering 
Eucharist at Annual Meeting and consult with the celebrant, or whoever plans the service, 
regarding the offertory prayer. Arrange for the collection and for convocation vouchers to be 
presented. 

4. Be responsible for the Alms Basin when it is requested by branches. 

5. Serve on Diocesan Finance Committee. 



CHRISTIAN MINISTRIES AND COLLEGE WORK 

Ms. Mary Hawkins 
1805 Primrose Street, Durham 27707 

We believe that everyone embodies a unique personal ministry. It is the purpose of this 
office to help churchwomen find their personal ministry and encourage them to pursue it. 

Another duty of our office is to maintain a relationship with Episcopal students as they leave 
home to broaden their lives. 

CHRISTIAN MINISTRIES 

1. Know ourselves better through prayer and study. 

2. Explore our own interests, talents and gifts; then own, acclaim and use them! 

3. Remind each other that women are members of the "Ministry of the Laity." 

4. Encourage the knowledge that ministry is not confined to the church alone. 

5. Support all women in their quest for selfhood and service. 

6. Affirm our womanhood. 

7. Take comfort in knowing that: "anytime I am helping other people in any way I am 
ministering to them; I am showing them God's love through my action and my being." 

COLLEGE WORK 

The college work section of this office seeks to maintain a relationship with Episcopal 
students. 

1. Students who are away at college— 

a. Keep in touch with students. Make a file on each student and send birthday, 
Christmas and Easter cards, newsletters, etc. 

b. Arrange get-together or honor the students at a regular church occasion such as a 
coffee hour after church service. 

c. Plan a Sunday for college students and use them as acolytes, lay readers and ushers. 

2. Students who come to local colleges— 

a. Check with local colleges and determine what the relationship can be between 
Churchwomen and Episcopal students. 

b. Encourage students to be a part of church program. 

3. College chaplains will visit and explain their role on college campus. Invite a chaplain to 
speak at Churchwomen's meeting or plan a special church service for the presentation. 



36 



PROMOTION 

Mrs. John Gregory 
5601 Westfield Drive, Greensboro 27410 

The essential duty of the Diocesan Promotion Secretary is to promote the ideas and activities 
of the Episcopal Churchwomen. It is her duty to keep all churchwomen informed of things to 
come and to report on noteworthy activities which have taken place. She is available to assist 
branch officers in promoting individual programs as well as diocesan sponsored ones. The ef- 
fectiveness of this job depends somewhat on her being informed by local churchwomen about 
their endeavors. 

The Episcopal Churchwomen of North Carolina is a very vital organization, offering many 
opportunities for spiritual growth to all its members and prospective members. Com- 
municating this message is the task of all, but particularly the task of promotional workers. In 
keeping with this, the following suggestions are offered: 

1. Convocation Chairmen and Branch Presidents should be certain that someone is respon- 
sible for the work of informing the other members of what is going on in their organizations. 

2. Make effective use of your church bulletins and/or newsletters to inform members about 
coming events and activities. 

3. Assist other branch officers with your ideas and imagination in promoting the ECW and 
in promoting their respective programs. 

4. Establish a good relationship with your local press and solicit their aid in promoting your 
work. 

5. Inform other women in the Diocese of any activities or projects which you feel are 
outstanding by reporting them in The Communicant. 

6. Contact your Diocesan Secretary for any assistance she may be able to give you in carry- 
ing out the above suggestions. 



ALTAR WORK AND SERVICE OF EXCHANGE 

Mrs. Paul Wright, Jr. 
3807 Churchill Circle, Hope Valley, Durham 27707 

Altar Work is rewarding and meaningful service in all of its phases. Anything done in God's 
service and to His Glory should be performed with love and to the best of our ability. Parishes 
have different needs and customs. No attempt will be made to standardize. The object is to in- 
crease the efficiency and devotion of each Guild in carrying out the wishes of the Rector. Our 
Lord accepted the ministry of faithful women during His earthly life. We pray that He accept 
and bless the work which our Guilds undertake in the care of their Sanctuaries. 

In the individual branches the Altar Guild Chairman is not always an officer of the ECW. In 
fact, there may not be a specific person to whom these responsibilities would be delegated. In 
such cases, I would appreciate those having access to this hand book assuring that the proper 
person, Rector or Altar Guild Chairman be given this information, so they may avail 
themselves of the services of this office. I encourage your correspondence on any help needed. 

This office will provide help in: 

1. Setting up procedures for Altar work. 

2. Teaching the skills necessary for maintaining a Sacristy, and preparing for various Ser- 
vices of Worship. 

3. Specific hints and helps for the various housekeeping problems which arise. 

4. Encouraging more ladies to participate in the activities of the Guild, and those in the 
Guild to refresh their enthusiasm for their work. 

5. Suggestions for services which the Guilds may provide other than the traditional 
housekeeping duties. 

6. In circulating items not currently in use by one Parish to a Parish or Mission where there 
is a need. 

7. In obtaining printed aids such as books and catalogues for Altar needs. 



37 



ALTAR GUILD PRAYERS 

For use before work: 

Almighty God, grant we beseech Thee, that we may handle Holy things with reverence, and 
perform our work with such faithfulness and devotion, that it may rise with acceptance before 
Thee and obtain Thy blessing; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

For use after work: 

O God, bless and accept the work of my hands and all who minister to Thee in the care and 
adornment of Thy Sanctuary. Bless and hallow them who love the beauty of Thy House, that 
Thy Holy Name may be glorified; through Jesus Christ, Our Lord. Amen. 



CHURCH PERIODICAL CLUB 

Mrs. Robert Herford 
917 Meadow Lane, Henderson 27536 

The Church Periodical Club, serving the ministry of the printed word since 1888, is the only 
organization in the Episcopal Church devoted solely to supplying free printed material to those 
who cannot otherwise obtain it. Its steadily expanding, adaptable program is unique among 
the churches in giving free materials to responsible recipients they themselves specify. It is 
supported by contributions and most of its work is done by volunteers. 

CPC functions on all levels, nationally, world-wide, locally— in parishes, communities, 
dioceses. Religious, educational, technical, recreational books, magazines, leaflets are provid- 
ed for the most remote places and for nearest neighbors. Needs that exceed local resources are 
referred to National Books Fund. 

This fund is directed by a committee of experienced volunteers, meeting to evaluate each re- 
quest. Most are granted as far as funds permit. National Books Fund projects have financed a 
translation of the Prayer Book in Malay to giving medical journals to the stations served by the 
S. S. Hope. 

How can CPC become alive in your Parish? 

1. Pray for the work of CPC for guidance asking God to direct you in spreading the Good 
News with the printed word. 

2. Plan to publicize the work of CPC to all men, women and children in your parish by 
observing the first Sunday in October (CPC Sunday). 

3. Plan to educate your parish on CPC Sunday in the importance of continuing to supply 
printed materials to people around the world. 

4. Use your parish bulletin and meetings in your parish to remind them of CPC Sunday in 
October. Use the CPC prayers at all services and meetings that week in your parish. 

In our Diocese, the CPC work is done through the Episcopal Churchwomen, headed by a 
Diocesan Director of CPC and carried out by CPC secretaries in the branches. The Secretary of 
Missions could also serve as CPC Secretary in those churches of small membership. 

NOTES: 

All contributions should be sent to the Diocesan Director of CPC. All contributions should 
be made by check payable to Church Periodical Club. Do not remit to the Diocesan Treasurer. 
Enclose a memo showing the source so proper credit can be given. 

When your branch or parish sends a check to the National Books Fund as a memorial or as a 
gift to a Seminarian, the CPC secretary should so inform the recipient of the memorial or gift.

PRESIDENT'S CROSS 

The engraved silver Celtic cross worn by the Diocesan President during 
her term of office was a gift of Mrs. Leslie Evans in 1956. She wore the 
cross during her administration as President of the Woman's Auxiliary 
and presented it to Mrs. T. P. Thomas at her installation at Annual 
Meeting, in the Church of the Good Shepherd, Raleigh, in 1958. The back 
of the cross bears the inscription: "President, Woman's Auxiliary, Diocese 
of North Carolina." 



PENDULA 

The pendula is worn by all Diocesan Past-Presidents in the IV Province. 
It is an oval of gold or silver, with a Chi-Rho symbol bearing seventeen 
stars on the crossbars. The stars represent the number of Dioceses in the 
Province. The pendula is a gift to our Retiring Diocesan President by Dr. 
Philip DeWolfe, now of Florida, in memory of his mother, Elizabeth 
Owens DeWolfe. Dr. DeWolfe's wife, Anne, was a member of our 
Diocesan Executive Board in 1963 when the decision was made to give the 
pendula to retiring Diocesan Presidents. At that time North Carolina was 
the only Diocese in the Province which did not present one to its Presi- 
dent. Through Dr. DeWolfe's generosity, all living Past-Presidents were 
presented with a pendula at Annual Meeting at St. Michael's Church, 
Raleigh, in 1963. Mrs. James L. Godfrey, of Chapel Hill, was the Diocesan 
President when this tradition was begun in our Diocese. 



ALMS BASIN 

The UTO Alms Basin is made of silver and gold collected from all 
parishes in the Diocese of North Carolina; an idea conceived by Mrs. B. 
W. Roberts. Mrs. Brown Patterson designed the center seal made up of 
gold wedding rings, pins and crosses donated. Mr. Louis Glasier was the 
ecclesiastical craftsman. It was dedicated by Bishop Penick at Annual 
Meeting, April 20, 1955, in Chapel Hill. It is available for Spring and Fall 
Ingathering upon request of the UTO Secretary.

Message for the Episcopal Churchwomen's Yearbook— 1981-82 

from the Right Reverend Thomas A. Fraser 

Bishop of the Diocese of North Carolina 



Dear Episcopal Churchwomen: 

Every year the Episcopal Churchwomen of the Diocese grow in 
depth of thought and in development of program and activities. 
This is a very healthy sign in an age when there appears to be a lack 
of direction in many other organizations. 

I rejoice in this growth and development and hope that each 
individual Chapter of the ECW across the Diocese will continue to be 
inspired and led by the Diocesan organization. 

My prayers and best wishes to all throughout the Diocese who 
serve this most helpful arm of the Church. 

Faithfully, Your Bishop 



JAcziU. -^G-*i&4s

IN MEMORIAM 
ANNA BARROW CLARK GORDON 

Born: January 23, 1887, in Hamilton, North Carolina 
Died: October 27, 1980, in Eden, North Carolina 

The daughter of a family traditionally devoted to service both to the state and 
the Church, Anna Clark fiinished her formal education in 1905 at St. Mary's 
College in Raleigh, specializing in Latin. She became a schoolteacher, a career 
which she followed until her marriage in 1913 to the Rev. William Jones 
Gordon, priest-in-charge of the newly-formed mission in Spray, now St. Luke's 
Parish, Eden. 

Her life as wife, mother of seven children, co-worker with her husband in all 
areas of his ministry, friend of those in need, inspired Sunday School teacher for 
over sixty years, gardener, musician, world traveller, excellent cook and charming 
hostess, avid Carolina sports fan, scholar, lover of beauty in all its aspects, 
epitomized the concept of one imbued with the gifts of the Holy Spirit: wisdom 
and understanding, counsel and ghostly strength, knowledge and true godliness 
and holy fear. 

To be with Anna was joy, and it is with joy that we remember her: a past 
President of our Diocesan Episcopal Churchwomen, then the Women's 
Auxiliary; Mother of the Year of North Carolina in 1957; a true lady, filled with 
love, humor and grace; of many talents, none of which lay idle; one always eager 
to learn, imparting her deep knowledge without pretension. 

Preceeded in death by her husband in 1947, her spirit of service continues in 
the lives of her children: Nancy (Mrs. Emmerson Dameron); Almeria; the Rt. 
Rev. William Jones Gordon, Jr.; Laura (Mrs. Donald Williams); Jocelyn; Mary 
Irvin; and Grace (Mrs. Cecil Pless, Jr.). 

Thanks be to God for His servant Anna. May light perpetual shine upon her. 



PRAYERS 



RENEWAL 
Almighty God, by whose Holy Spirit your children are led to acknowledge Jesus Christ as Lord and 
Savior; grant that this same Spirit may so dwell in us that we may be daily renewed, and manifest in 
our lives the Love that reaches out in blessing to all people. Empower us to help build up your 
Kingdom on earth to your honor and glory. We ask this, gracious Father, in the name of your Son, 
Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

GUIDANCE 
Direct us. O Lord, in all our doings, with Thy most gracious favor and further us with Thy continual 
help; that in all our works begun, continued and ended in Thee, we may glorify Thy Holy Name, and 
finally, by Thy mercy, obtain everlasting life; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

EPISCOPAL CHURCHWOMEN 

Almighty God, our heavenly Father, bless we pray Thee, our work for the extension of Thy 
Kingdom, and make us so thankful for the precious gift to us of Thy beloved Son, that we may pray 
fervently, labor diligently, and give liberally to make Him known to all nations as their Saviour and 
their King through the same Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Almighty God, whose love reacheth unto the world's end, and who didst send Thy blessed Son to 
redeem all mankind, help us, we pray Thee, so to reveal Thy love in prayer and work and stewardship, 
that by Thy spirit all nations and people may be baptized into one body, even as all are redeemed by 
one Saviour; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

MISSIONS 
Almighty God, help us we pray Thee, to shed abroad the light of Thy church in all the world. Give 
us greater zeal for Thy Kingdom, that we may offer abundantly our prayers, our work, and our gifts; so 
that the earth may be filled with the knowledge of Thy glory, as the waters cover the sea, through Thy 
Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

CHRISTIAN SOCIAL RELATIONS 
Send us, O God, as Thy messengers to hearts without a home, to lives without love, to the crowds 
without a guide. Send us to the children whom none have blessed, to the famished whom none have 
visited, to the fallen whom none have lifted, to the bereaved whom none have comforted. Kindle Thy 
flame on the altars of our hearts, that others may be warmed thereby; causing Thy light to shine in our 
souls, that others may see the way; keep our sympathies and insight ready, our wills keen, our hands 
quick to help our brothers in their need; for Christ's sake. Amen. 

UNITED THANK OFFERING 

O God, who art the hope of all peoples everywhere, we thank Thee for the outpourings of love and 
generosity which have enabled us to respond to some of the world's needs in places far and near; guide 
us as we face changing times and new frontiers; keep our hearts thankful and our vision clear as we 
work to fulfill our vocation and ministry as members of the body of thy Son Jesus Christ our Lord. 
Amen. 

Accept, O Father, this joyful sacrifice of thanksgiving and praise, and bless these gifts to the setting 
forward of Thy Kingdom; that as we have gratefully received the benefits Thy bounty has bestowed, so 
we may cheerfully share them with Thy children in all the world; for His sake whose life and death and 
rising to life again were a song of praise to Thee, O Thou Most Holy, our Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen. 

CHRISTIAN EDUCATION 
O God, who has sent Thy beloved Son to be unto us the Way, the Truth and the Life; grant that we, 
looking unto Him may set forward the teaching power of Thy Church, to the nurture of Thy children, 
the increase of Thy Kingdom and the glory of Thy Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

DIOCESAN MISSIONARIES 
O Lord and Heavenly Father, without whom we can do no good thing, but with whose help even 
Thy little ones go forth as the mighty, we beseech Thee to prosper the work of all Thy missionaries, 

wherever they may be (and especially the work of Thy servant ). 

Grant them the wisdom to know and the strength to do Thy will, and bless them with the hope and 
consolation of Thy heavenly promises, for the sake of Thy Son, Our Saviour, Jesus Christ. Amen. 



COLLEGE WORK AND CHRISTIAN MINISTRIES 
We pray, O Lord, for guidance as we search for laborers for Thy harvest. May we remember that 
whatever our calling, it may be directed to Thee. Bless teachers, students and chaplains at all institu- 
tions of learning. Open our eyes that we may find and encourage the right young men and women for 
full time church work. In Jesus' name. Amen. 

THE CHURCH PERIODICAL CLUB 
O Lord Jesus Christ, Who art the Light of the World, pour out, we beseech Thee, upon all Thy ser- 
vants Thy Holy Spirit of Wisdom and understanding that they may know the hope of Thy calling, the 
riches of Thine inheritance in the saints, and the greatness of Thy power to us who believe. More 
especially we pray Thee to direct and prosper the Church Periodical Club that in all its prayer and labor 
it may be enabled to make the light of Thy glory shine forth in the dark places of the earth. And do 
Thou of Thy mercy and grace establish Thy Church in the truth of Thy Gospel, who livest and reignest 
with the Father and the Holy Spirit ever One God, world without end. Amen. 

USE BEFORE AND AT THE TIME OF THE ELECTION OF OFHCERS 
O Holy Spirit, Whose guidance and inspiration alone can enable us to fulfill the Will of God, teach 
us, we pray Thee, the dignity of our work as churchwomen, and give us grace to choose as our leaders 
those whom Thou dost call to Thy faithful service. To those so chosen give a spirit of reverence in the 
exercise of their office, and to all of us a deep sense of our obligation in the discharge of every duty, to 
do all to the glory of God through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

BENEDICTION 
May the blessings of God Almighty, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, rest upon us and upon 
all work and worship done in His name. May He give us light to guide us, courage to support us, and 
love to unite us, now and forevermore. Amen. 



SERVICE FOR INSTALLATION OF OFFICERS 
For Branch Use

Reverend Sir, on behalf of the women of Church, I present to you the Officers of 

the Episcopal Churchwomen of this parish. 

RECTOR: Let us pray. 

Blessed Spirit of God. come to these Thy servants in all Thy fullness and power. Compass their 
minds with wisdom. Fire their wills with Thy might. Melt their hearts with Thy love. Through Thy

Thy love. Enlighten their minds more and more with the light of the Gospel so that they may walk

from complacency and fear of new ways; and give them selflessness - patience - courage - gentleness 
-thankfulness - humor - faithfulness - enthusiasm - wisdom. So, as they daily present themselves to 
Thee for renewal, may they be even stronger channels of Thy grace, and instruments of Thy will in the 
spiritual life of the Diocese. Amen.

with you for ever. Amen. 

SERVICE OF INSTALLATION OF 
OFFICERS FOR THE EPISCOPAL CHURCHWOMEN 
Let those who have been elected stand before the Bishop and then let him say: 
It is right and fitting that those who have been duly elected as Officers of the Episcopal

respective offices in your presence; and that we should ask the blessings of God upon them for their 
support and guidance in the performance of the duties which you have laid upon them.

Who put their trust in Thee, 
Send them help from the holy place,

Our Father...

servants who have been chosen to serve Thee in the special work for which they have been selected; 
grant unto them zeal and earnestness in the performance of their office; wisdom and strength to meet

PRESIDENT'S ADDRESS 

Episcopal Churchwomen 

Ninety-Ninth Annual Meeting, April 28-29, 1981 

St. Stephen's Church 

Durham, N.C. 

Bishop Fraser, Bishop Estill, Delegates and Visitots: 

It is always a good idea to review the year past. A review gives us perspective and gives direction for 
the future. 

The times we're living in are frightening. The economic situation here and throughout the world is 
causing hardship everywhere. The widespread drought has increased starvation and suffering in Africa, 
India, the Orient, and the Middle East. Wars and revolutions are a way of life in too many areas of the 
world. The crime rate has risen intolerably. Violence is an everyday occurance. Women, children, and 
men are abused. Many of our older citizens are afraid and are prisoners in their own homes because of 
fear. Many women are returning to the job market from choice and as a matter of necessity to educate 
their children. Today, 11% of the total population is over 65 years of age, and it's estimated that in 15 
years this group will be 25% of the total. Sadly, 58% of those over 65 are financially under the poverty 
level. It is also estimated that in 15 years, 50% of all Episcopalians will be over 50. 

Too many of our young people are without roots and runaways. There is a dreadful rise in teenage 
pregnancies and drug and alcohol addiction. Suicide is the second leading cause of death among the 
young. Young people are victims of violent crime, prostitution, child pornography, and 
homosexuality. 

These are problems that cry out for a response. We are hurting and frustrated by the magnitude of 
these problems. We want to take heart, stand up, and respond to His call, but how do we respond? 

Unfortunately, we can't solve all these problems, but we can do something, and we have. 

Through the United Thank Offering, we reach out to abused women and children in Alabama, 
California, Ohio, Nevada, New York, and Raleigh, N.C. 

We have also helped youth programs and clinics in Florida, the District of Columbia, Massachusetts, 
and New York as well as in our own communities. 

We are aware of complex problems facing our older citizens. Many of your branches support Meals 
on Wheels, Retired Senior Volunteer Programs, State and local projects, as well as programs in 
California and Oklahoma. The ECW committee chaired by Rose Flannagan is exploring ways we can be 
more effective in our response to the needs of the elderly. You'll hear more about this in the fall. We 
are enthusiastic about programs already underway at St. Paul's and St. Martin's. Natalie Ling will talk 
about her involvement with the program at St. Paul's this afternoon. By this time next year, we hope 
there will be a much greater awareness and response throughout the whole Diocese. 

You have helped feed the hungry through the Presiding Bishop's Fund for World Relief, parish 
hunger funds, CROP, the Migrant Fund, soup kitchens, Mobile Meals, and crisis centers. We must also 
simplify our own lifestyles and make a concerted effort to cut down on our consumption of resources. 
As a country that represents 6% of the world's population, we consume approximately 1/3 of the 
available resources. What will a simplified lifestyle do to help a starving child in Somalia? For the short 
term probably nothing, but over the long term a steadily increasing thrift and conservationist trend in 
the U.S. might result in changing attitudes and habits that allow for a more equitable and responsible 
distribution of the Earth's available resources. Conclusions of the Presidential Commission on World 
Hunger and the Brandt Commission suggest that without some decrease of consumption in the U.S. 
and other developed nations and a commitment to redistribution of resources worldwide, the hungry 
will never be properly fed. 

As we are aware of the increasing number of women employed outside the home, the ECW 
sponsored a day for working women and other busy women with similar interests and concerns. The 
Sessions on Survival on All Saints' Day was an attempt to speak to this group of Churchwomen . There 
have been numerous requests for another event of this type. We will continue to respond to these 
requests. Many branches have recognized needs in their own parishes and have formed chapters for 
working women, mothers of young children, and others unable to attend regular structured meetings. 
We hope other branches will follow their lead. 



The fall seminar with Dr.^Verna Dozier as leader and the Rev. I. Mayo Little as chaplain was fully 
subscribed. Everyone fortunate enough to attend felt that this opportunity was a very special ex- 
perience, and we are so thankful that this year we will be able to have twice as many at our Conference 
Center. 

The worship retreat in January was led by Fr. Archer Torrey. It was a helpful time for our Church- 
women. We were able to accommodate twenty-six for this retreat and it too was fully subscribed. You'll 
have the opportunity later today to hear Fr. Torrey talk about his work at Jesus Abbey in Korea. 

You have given money, time, and talents to meet a large variety of needs. 

The Church Periodical Club received over $1500 in addition to magazines and printed matter. 

United Thank Offering contributions amounted to approximately $42,000, and our missionaries 
were sent Christmas gifts totaling $2113. 

Specials continue to be a very large part of your giving. You never cease to amaze and delight me 
with the variety and scope of your outreach. I just learned that one branch (St. Bartholomew's, Pitts- 
boro) has given seed money to build a solar heat system as a pilot project for heating homes of the 
under-priviledged . 

The Christmas cards and soup labels have continued to pour in. In fact, your response has been so 
great that we are going to ask you to send the cards direct to Japan and the soup labels direct to St. 
Mary's. We've run out of money for shipping. What a "souper" response! 

The problem of expenses is still hanging over our heads. The pledges to the Diocese are not adequate 
to pay the cost of administration for this is the place where inflation is reflected. The constitution 
states: "From the total amount pledged toward the budget, after expenses of administration have been 
provided, one half shall apply to work outside the Diocese and one half to work inside the Diocese." 
We find it very difficult to cut the program portion of the budget, and have tried uunrealistically to 
maintain the status quo. It is evident that this situation can no longer continue. It is not fair to have 
financial status as a criterion for board membership. Every officer is willing to help pick up part of the 
expenses of her office, but increased costs of postage, gasoline, paper, etc. have made out present 
budget totally unrealistic. Therefore, in the 1982 budget, it is necessary that we ask you to cut some of 
the program portions of the budget in order to raise the administrative portion. 

At the February Board meeting, many hours were spent on an evaluation. The question of tenure 
was discussed, but since most Church committees-Council, Vestry, and Standing Committee--are 
three-year terms, and the National meeting of the Churchwomen is every three years, it was felt that 
the three-year term was best suited to our needs; it was also noted that no one has ever turned down a 
board position because of length of term. The board urged a more realistic budget; this I've already 
discussed. Better communications between board and branch officers was expressed as a concern. As a 
result, we are exploring the idea of a newsletter mailed four times a year to every officer in the year- 
book. The newsletter will give a calendar, officers' notes, an exchange of ideas, notices of upcoming 
events. It will be sent by fourth-class mail. This would cut the numbet of first-class mailings to each 
officer and keep you better informed of events in the Diocese. The letter to branch presidents will be 
sent in interim months. 

In hopes of improving our nominating process, nomination forms will be sent to you in August. We 
urge you to think carefully about the board vacancies and nominate the person you think best qualified 
for the job. This is a serious responsibility, and the nominating committee depends on your input. 

The board also felt some leadership training techniques including small group leadership, public 
speaking, and parliamentary procedures should be offered to branch officers in addition to wotkshops. 
In response to that, a committee will be appointed to investigate the possibility of such a program. 

Board members felt the need for orientation for new board members. This was started last year and 
will be done this year. Every board member is expected to keep a notebook of her monthly respon- 
sibilities and activities. This notebook is to be passed on to her successor in addition to face-to-face ex- 
planations of job requirements. This is a valuable tool for branch and convocation officers to use also. 

Our evaluation of workshops, retreats, and seminars indicated that each has been well received. Each 
is unique and fulfills needs in different areas of our lives. We realize we can never be "all things to all 
women," but we do listen to you and we belive the diverse kinds of programs offered reflect this. We 
are open to suggestions and urge you to continue letting us know what you wish to have happen. 

Several other ideas were suggested and will be studied this year, including a brochure explaining 
ECW to new Episcopalians and a diocesan theme and program for the year. 

This spring a new method of reporting specials was introduced at workshops. This is the direct result 
of your requesting a simplified system. 

Two years ago, you pledged $100,000 to build a cottage at the Conference Center. As interest rates 
continue to rise, we must pay as much of our pledge as possible as soon as possible. We still owe 



$40,000. Wouldn't it be wonderful to turn over the remainder of our pledge at our next —our 100th — 
Annual Meeting? Wouldn't that be a fantastic way to celebrate our 100th anniversary? Let's roll up our 
sleeves and try for it. I'll save more aluminum and try to sell more fertilizer if you'll have more good 
fundraisers — and I know we'll do it! 

The Church for centuries has been a male-dominated institution, and still is, and will continue to 
be, as long as the clergy remains primarily male. Only twelve years ago there were no women on vestries 
or diocesan committees. The only female at Convention was the president of the ECW, and she was 
only allowed on the floor to give her yearly report. The organization of Episcopal Churchwomen 
worked unstintingly for years to achieve representation on the decision-making level. Considering the 
length of time it's taken women to achieve equality in the eyes of the Church, we are making progress. 
True, much of it is tokenism, but we do have a foot in the door. Instead of complaining, we must avail 
ourselves of the opportunities we are given and show our worth by our abilities, intelligence, 
determination, and dedication. The only way to overcome prejudice is by proving our abilities on an 
equal basis and by bringing our special gifts to the opportunities we receive. Not all women (or men) 
want to serve on vestries or in other policy-making areas. That's also their right. Their call and their 
talents lead them into other areas, no less important. It would be a sorry army that had only generals! 
We must respect each person for their individual ability, gifts and commitment. 

Later in our program, we'll hear from many people who have answered God's call using their various 
talents and abilities. This evening we'll be introduced to what might be a new way of worship for many 
of us. St. Gregory's Guild, a group of students at the University of North Carolina who have been 
active in the life and worship of the Chapel of the Cross, will present the sermon with excerpts from 
Godspell. The abandon and joy of their worship is thrilling. I have a book entitled To Kiss the 
Joy — that's what these young people do! 

On May 9th, we are sponsoring a day at the Conference Center — a day we're calling "A New Begin- 
ning: Creating a Bond of Love." We invite all the diocesan family to come. The Most Rev. Trevor 
Huddleston, Archbishop of the Indian Ocean and Bishop of the Seychelles, will be our headliner. He 
has said: "The real thrust of mission today is to proclaim that the Church is community, held together 
by the powers of supernatural love — and this the Church is failing to do!" Since this will be a new 
beginning for us as a diocesan family in our new Conference Center, we want to commit ourselves to 
building a community — to creating a bond of love here and at home and reach out into the world and 
share our talents and love in response to God's call to us to take heart, stand up, and follow Him. 

You are an inspiration to me! 

Thank you, beautiful ladies!

REPORT OF THE NOMINATING COMMITTEE 

President-Elect Mrs. D. James Coleman 

Secretary of Missions Mrs. Wilson Moser 

Secretary of Christian Social Relations Mrs. Franklin Kalk 

There were no nominations from the floor. Mrs. Long moved the acceptance of the slate as 
presented; the motion was seconded, and passed. Mrs. Long then noted that the Churchwomen of the 
Diocese of North Carolina will be able to support three delegates at the Triennial Meeting. Mrs. Cole- 
man will be one as President-Elect, and two others will be elected by ballot; runners-up in this election 
will serve as alternates in the order of their vote totals. Mrs. Long moved to suspend the rules to elect 
Mrs. J. Haywood Evans — who will be present at the meeting with her expenses paid by the Triennial 
Committee — as an additional delegate. The motion was seconded and carried. 

Mrs. Harris noted the death of our Retired Bishop, the Rt. Rev. Richard H. Baker, during Holy 
Week. Memorials may be sent to the maintenance fund of the Baker Building at St. Augustine's Col- 
lege. 

Before calling on the guest speakers, Mrs. Harris remarked on the way each of them illustrates the 
theme, 'Take Heart, Stand Up, He Is Calling You," by acting in different places and with different 
gifts, but all in the service of the same Lord. 

Mrs. Richard Ling described the Ministry of the Elderly at St. Paul's Church, Winston-Salem: how 
the ministry was built, and what it has led to. 

Mrs. J. Haywood Evans, Chairman of the Triennial Committee, told of her responsibilities in plan- 
ning the program for the next Triennial (1982). The meeting's theme, "Go Forth Into the World," is to 
be implemented in areas of spirituality, the family, and the environment. Mrs. Betty Baker, who, as 
Presiding Officer of the 1982 Triennial, will be responsible for carrying out rhe Triennial Committee 
designs, described the facilities in New Orleans and some of the advance preparations which delegates 
will be asked to make. She is now seeking examples of effective outreach to be shared at Triennial, as 
well as issues to be submitted in the form of resolutions. She also noted that the daily devotions sug- 
gested in Day By Day next fall will be coordinated with Triennial themes. 

Fr. Archer Torrey gave an account of his work at Jesus Abbey in Korea, a house of intercessory prayer 
for the renewal of the Church in Korea and for world peace. The Abbey includes a small farm, and 
retreats and conferences are also held there. Fr. Torrey 's talk was illustrated with slides of oil paintings 
done by Mrs. Torrey in Korea. 

The Rt. Rev. Robert W. Estill, Bishop Co-Adjutor of the Diocese of North Carolina, spoke about his 
call to serve small churches of the Diocese, and described the stages of his own conversion. 

Mr. Nicholas Kitchen, the youngest performer to be selected for the Chamber Music Division of the 
Yale University Summer Music Program, and the son of two dedicated church musicians (Dr. Joseph 
Kitchen, organist-choirmaster at St. Stephen's, and Dorothy Kitchen, who has worked with the or- 
chestra at Holy Trinity School in Haiti), gave a masterful performance of a difficult piece by Ravel. 

12 



Following announcements, the first session closed with the singing of Hymn 538 "God is Working 
His Purpose Out." 

Dinner was served at St. Stephen's at 7:00 p.m. At 8:30 p.m., a worship service was held at St. 
Stephen's, with Bishop Fraser as Celebrant; the sermon was a selection from Godspell performed by 
members of St. Gregory's Guild, a group of university students from the Chapel of the Cross, Chapel 
Hill. 



SESSION II 

The second session was called to order by Mrs. Harris at 9:00 a.m. on April 29th. After the singing of 
Hymn 156, "Awake, Awake," the Rev Joshua T. MacKenzie gave the opening invocation. 

Mrs. Harris announced that Mrs. George Lochte would serve as an additional member of the 
Elections Committee, and that Miss Alice Herring had agreed to serve as the Committee's chairman in 
the absence of Ms. Reed. 

Mrs. John Gregory extended an invitation to all Churchwomen and their families to take part in an 
outing at the new Conference Center on Saturday, May 9th: "a New Beginning: Creating a Bond of 
Love," led by the Most Rev. Trevcr Huddleston. 

Mr. Frank Ballard reported on new programs planned at Kanuga. 

The Rev. Harrison Simons announced the Christian Education conference planned for July 26-29 at 
St. Mary's College, to be based on the theme, "The Word in Our Midst"; he also reported the 
formation of the Strategy Committee for Small Churches. 

Mrs. William Adair announced the Fall Seminar planned for the Conference Center on September 
22-24, 1981. Dr. Verna Dozier will lead a study of Mark. 

Mrs. Ben B. Everett gave advance notice of the Worship Retreat to be led by Bishop Estill January 
19-20, 1982, at the Conference Center. Registration forms will be available in the fall. 

Mrs. Nathaniel Smith presented the budget as proposed by the Finance Committee. She moved that 
the 1980 surplus be applied to cover auditing the Diocesan books ($600) and to establish a fund for 
retreats, conferences, and spring planning days ($640), as recommended by the Board. The motion was 
seconded and carried. 

Mrs. Smith moved that 1981 Current Grants be divided between the Triennial Fund ($250) and 
Holy Trinity School in Haiti ($750). The motion was seconded and passed. 

Mrs. Smith moved the adoption of each section of the Proposed Budget for 1982 in turn; each was 
seconded and passed. It was moved, seconded, and passed that the 1982 Epiphany Fund be sent to the 
Rev Mark Boesser in the Diocese of Alaska. 

Finally, Mrs. Smith drew attention to certain transactions of the previous year and described the 
streamlined method of reporting specials now in trial use. Mrs. Harris commended Mrs. Smith for her 
diligence. 

Mrs. Harris introduced each of the nominees for Delegate to Triennial before ballotting. 

The report of the Resolutions Committee was presented by Mrs. Watson Sherrod. (The resolutions 
passed at Annual Meeting are completely recorded in the Addendum. ) 

A resolution changing the name of our organization to "Episcopal Church Women" (three words 
instead of two) passed. NOTE: See Addendum to these minutes. 

A resolution supporting the renovation of Smeades (sic) Hall at St. Mary's College was unfavorably 
reported by the Committee and not moved by the meeting. 

A resolution deploring the murders of children in Atlanta, extending sympathy to the people of 
Atlanta, and providing that a copy of the present resolution be sent to the Mayor of Atlanta passed. 

A resolution abhorring the advertisement of personal hygiene products on television and providing 
that a copy of the present resolution be sent to the manufacturers of such products was introduced in an 
amended form, providing that the resolution be sent to the major networks, the FCC, and 
Representatives from North Carolina as well as the manufacturers. After discussion, both the amended 
and the original versions of the resolution failed. 

A resolution opposing the passage of the Human Life Statute (Helms-Hyde Bill) and providing that 
a copy of the present resolution be sent to Senators Jesse Helms and John East and Representative Hyde 
passed. 

A resolution authorizing the Chair to appoint a committee to study the question of abortion from a 
Christian viewpoint and providing that a copy of the present resolution be sent to all branches for 
individual consideration passed. 

A resolution deploring unsafe disposition of hazardous waste, calling upon all in authority to enact 
and enforce laws requiring those who create such waste to exercise their moral and financial respon- 

13 



sibility to provide for the safe disposal thereof, and providing that a copy of the present resolution be 
sent to the Governor and Lt. Governor of the State of North Carolina and to the appropriate legislative 
committees of the State and Nation passed. 

A resolution opposing repeal of the Mental Health Systems Act failed, despite efforts of its sup- 
porters to amend a phrase which its opponents found especially objectionable. 

A delegation moved the adoption of a policy requiring that all resolutions to be considered at the 
Annual Meeting of the Episcopal Churchwomen be submitted at least one month in advance of the 
meeting to allow adequate time for study. The motion was seconded and carried. 

The Rev. Philip Brown, Director of the Penick Home and Chairman of the Diocesan Task Force on 
Aging, reported on the Penick Home. Greetings were extended from St. Mary's College by Dr. John 
Rice, from Episcopal Child Care Services by Mr. John Powell, from St. Augustine's College by Dr. 
Thelma Roundtree; Mr. John Cosby reported for the first time on the newly-completed Conference 
Center, where he assumed the position of Director on February 1, 1981. 

Mrs. Thomas Oates, The Director of the Food Bank, described the project of warehousing surplus 
food destined to be destroyed and using it to feed the needy. 

Mrs. Harris announced that the offering of the previous evening, to be sent to the United Thank 
Offering, was $279.06. 

Mrs. Harris also presented the report of the Elections Committee on Delegates to Triennial. Elected 
as Delegates were Mrs. W. Blair Bryan and Mrs. Joel K. Bourne. First and second alternates are Mrs. 
John Landi and Mrs. Alan Cone. 

Bishop Fraser's annual message to the Churchwomen was a call to take faith seriously. Asserting that 
Christian joy, social justice, and excellence can only arise from confrontation with suffering, he urged 
self-forgetfulness, courage, readiness to suffer, and discipline. He concluded: "If you want to take 
Christianity seriously . . . you must go through suffering. There are no shortcuts ... we must die unto 
ourselves. That is our only hope." 

Mrs. M. E. Motsinger, Jr. presented a resolution memorializing the life of Anna Barrow Clark Gor- 
don, a Past President of the Churchwomen. She asked that it be filed in the minutes as a memorial to 
Mrs. Gordon and that copies be sent to members of her family. 

Mrs. Ogburn Yates reported for the Courtesy Committee. 

Bishop Fraser installed the new members of the Executive Board: Mrs. Coleman, Mrs. Kalk, Mrs. 
Moser, Mrs. W. C. Crawford (Chairman, Southwest Convocation) and Mrs. George Lochte (Chairman, 
Sandhills Convocation). 

Mrs. Harris announced that the 100th Annual Meeting will be held at Calvary Church, Tarboro, on 
April 27-28, 1982; she expressed special pleasure at the thought of returning to the church where the 
first Annual Meeting was held in 1882. 

Following the singing of Hymn 537, "Christ for the World We Sing," Bishop Fraser pronounced the 
benediction and the 99th Annual Meeting was adjourned. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Mrs. Kent Mullikin 
Secretary 

ADDENDUM TO THE MINUTES from the Parliamentarian in regard to the first resolution passed by 
the delegates to Annual Meeting which had the intent of changing the name of the organization from 
"Episcopal Churchwomen" to "Episcopal Church Women": 

At a consultation following the meeeting the Parliamentarian ruled that this resolution was out of 
order and voting on it illegal for the following reason: 

Article I of the Constitution and By-Laws of the Episcopal Churchwomen, Diocese of North Carolina 
reads as follows: 

"The name of this organization shall be Episcopal Churchwomen, Diocese of North Carolina." 

Article XI of the Constitution reads: 

"The Constitution may be amended at the Annual Meeting by a two-thirds vote of the delegates pre- 
sent, provided a written copy of the proposed amendment has been filed with the Diocesan Secretary 
and a notice of the same mailed to each branch by the Secretary at least one month prior to the Annual 
Meeting; or the Constitution may be amended without previous notice by the unanimous vote of the 
Annual Meeting." 

Since neither of these two conditions was fulfilled, the constitution stands as written and the action 
taken by Annual Meeting on the first resolution is null and void. 

Eleanor S. Godfrey 
Parliamentarian.

ADDENDUM TO THE MINUTES: The complete texts of resolutions passed at the 1981 Annual 
Meeting of the Episcopal Churchwomen of the Diocese of North Carolina. 

WHEREAS, in April, 1959 at the Annual Meeting in Winston-Salem, a resolution was adapted chang- 
ing the name "The Women's Auxiliary to the National Council of the Protestant Episcopal Church in 
the United States of America" to Episcopal Churchwomen of the Diocese of North Carolina" and 
WHEREAS, following the suggestion of the organization parish branches became known as "Episcopal 

Churchwomen of Parish", and 

WHEREAS, the abbreviation E.C.W. has been used on official documents as well as informal 
references, and 

WHEREAS, the purpose of this organization is to enable the women of the Episcopal Church "to 
share more fully in the Mission of the whole church." 

THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that we acknowledge the importance of each of the words our ab- 
breviation E.C.W. has given us and that we subsequently spell the name of our organization"Episcopal 
Church Women." 

WHEREAS, the Episcopal Churchwomen of the Diocese of North Carolina are shocked distressed by 

the senseless slaughter of children in Atlanta; and 

WHEREAS, our hearts reach out to the parents and friends of the murdered children; therefore, be it 

RESOLVED, that the 99th Annual Meeting of the Episcopal Churchwomen of the Diocese of North 

Carolina convey their sympathy and deep concern to the people of Atlanta; and be it further 

RESOLVED, that a copy of this resolution be sent to the Mayor of Atlanta, the Honorable Maynard 

Jackson. 

A RESOLUTION CONCERNING THE HUMAN LIFE STATUTE (Helms-Hyde Bill) 
(Effective sentence of the Helms-Hyde Bill: "For the purpose of enforcing the obligation of the States 
under the 14th Amendment not to deprive persons of life without due process of law, human life shall 
be deemed to exist from conception." 

WHEREAS, the determination of when life begins is in many ways essentially a religious question, and 
passage of the Human Life Statute would, by decreeing that human life begins at conception, force one 
religious belief on members of other faiths, and 

WHEREAS, the Human Life is unconstitutional in that it allows Congress to define the meaning of life 
as it relates to the 14th Amendment and thereby weakens the power of the judicial branch of govern- 
ment to protect the rights of individuals from the whims of the majority, thereby undermining the Bill 
of Rights which has traditionally been guarded by the Judiciary, and 

WHEREAS, passage of the Human Life Statute would set a dangerous precedent through the legisla- 
tion of morality on an issue (abortion) where no concensus exists and the imposition by law upon all in- 
dividuals of a morality not commonly shared in what is (or in the past has prided itself in being) a 
pluralistic society; therefore be it 

RESOLVED, that the Episcopal Churchwomen, Diocese of North Carolina, while neither supporting 
nor opposing abortion as now legally sanctioned, do hereby oppose passage of the Human Life Statute 
by the Congress of the United States, and be it further 

RESOLVED, that copies of this resolution be sent to Senators Jesse Helms and John East and to 
Representative Hyde. 

WHEREAS, As Episcopalians we affirm the tradition of the Church to advocate the cause of the troubl- 
ed, the oppressed and those who have no helper, be it 

RESOLVED that the 99th Annual Meeting of the Episcopal Churchwomen of the Diocese of North 
Carolina authorize the chair to appoint a Committee to study the question of Abortion from a Chris- 
tian viewpoint, and be it further 

RESOLVED that this report be sent forthwith to all branches for their individual consideration and 
their action. 

WHEREAS the disposition of hazardous waste has created a serious problem for the health and welfare 
of the United States, now be it 

RESOLVED that all in authority enact and vigorously enforce such laws as may be necessary to require 
those who create such wastes to exercise their moral and financial responsibility to provide for the order- 
ly and safe disposal thereof. Be it further 

RESOLVED that a copy of this resolution be sent to the Governor and Lt. Governor of the State of 
North Carolina and the appropriate legislative committees of the State and Nation from the Executive 
Board of the Episcopal Churchwomen of the Diocese of North Carolina.

REPORT OF THE COURTESY COMMITTEE 

Bishop Fraser, Bishop Estill, Mrs. Harris, members of the clergy, delegates, and visitors to the 99th 
Annual Meeting of the Episcopal Churchwomen of the Diocese of North Carolina, meeting in Durham 
at St. Stephen's Church: 

Convention delegates, it seems, are always enthusiastic. However, never have we known such en- 
thusiastic hostesses as are the gracious ladies of St. Stephen's Church. We thank the Rev. Joshua T. 
MacKenzie, the Rev. William Verdery Kerr, Mrs. W. Kimball Griffin, and her chairmen, Mrs. Pierre 
DuBose and Mrs. E. M. Schempp, and all the women who have made us feel so welcomed. And our 
special, unexpected thanks goes to the men of St. Stephen's for the part they played in making our din- 
ners so pleasant. 

The speakers we have heard have inspired us by their individual responses to the Lord's call. We have 
enjoyed the exquisite music, and delighted in the parables from Godspell. We've appreciated the 
beauty of St. Stephen's Church, with its unique stained-glass windows. It was meaningful, during the 
evening service, to use the new communion pieces given by five ECW members for the Conference 
Center in memory of Mrs. Thomas and Mrs. Gordon. 

Our special thanks go to the Rev. Uly Gooch, Dr. Joseph Kitchen, and to the chair. This meeting has 
been a joyful one, and we do, indeed, "Take heart." 

Mrs. Ogburn Yates, Chairman 
Mrs. E. H. Bost 
Mrs. Russell C. Harris

Episcopal Churchwomen Diocese of North Carolina 

We have examined the statement of assets, liabilities and fund balances of the Episcopal Church- 
women Diocese of North Carolina and the related statement of changes in fund balances arising from 
cash transactions for the year ended December 31,1 980 . Our examination of the recorded cash transac- 
tions was made in accordance with generally accepted auditing standards and, accordingly, included 
such tests of the accounting records and such other auditing procedures as we consider necessary in the 
circumstances. 

As described in Note 1, the Diocese's policy is to prepare its financial statements on the basis of 
recorded cash receipts and disbursements. Accordingly, the accompanying financial statements are not 
intended to present financial position and results of operations in conformity with generally accepted 
accounting principles. 

In our opinion, the accompanying statements and supporting schedule present fairly the recorded 
cash transactions of the Episcopal Churchwomen Diocese of North Carolina for the year ended 
December 31. 1980, on a basis consistent with the preceding year.

ORGANIZATIONAL STRUCTURE 
OF THE EPISCOPAL CHURCH 



The Rt. Rev. John Maury Allin, D.D., Presiding Bishop 
The Episcopal Church Center, 815 Second Ave., N.Y, N.Y. 10017 

General Convention: The governing body of the Church in the United States. Com- 
prised of the House of Bishops and the House of Deputies, clerical and lay. Meets every three years. 

Triennial: The meeting of Episcopal Churchwomen held simultaneously with General 
Convention. 

General Church Program: The schedule of work adopted by General Convention to 
further the Church's Mission. 

Executive Council: The Executive body of the Protestant Episcopal Church which carries out 
the Program of the Church between General Conventions. 

Province: A number of Dioceses and Missionary Districts, adjacently located. There are 
nine provinces in the United States. The Diocese of North Carolina belongs to the Fourth 
Province, known as the Sewanee Province. The work of the province is educational and promotional. 

Diocese: A group of parishes and missions under the jurisdiction of a Bishop. The Diocese of 
North Carolina has 64 parishes and 52 missions. See the Constitution and By-Laws in this Yearbook 
for the organization of the Episcopal Churchwomen in this Diocese. 

Convocation: A number of parishes and missions within a given area in a diocese. There are 
five convocations in the Diocese of North Carolina. See the Constitution, Article X, in this Yearbook 
for the organization of the Episcopal Churchwomen in the Convocations in the Diocese. 

Parish and Mission: A fellowship of redeemed people doing God's work under the leader- 
ship and direction of a priest. A parish is self-supporting, whereas a mission receives support from 
the diocese. 

The organization of Episcopal Churchwomen in a parish or mission is known as a Branch and is pat- 
terned after the Diocesan organization. The membership is composed of communicants who choose 
to be active members. The structure should be simple and flexible, depending on the size, interests, 
and needs of the group. 

In large parishes the Branch may be divided into smaller groups known as Chapters. The Chapters 
may have officers corresponding to those of the Branch.

EPISCOPAL CHURCHWOMEN 

History 

The first organized women's groups within the Church were called "Female Missionary Societies," as 
their purpose was to raise money for the support of missionaries. In 1871 General Convention recom- 
mended that the women of the Church, in every parish and mission in the land, be organized under 
the name of the "Woman's Auxiliary to the Board of Missions." This was done in 1872 and for many 
years the chief function of organized women's groups of the Church was to raise money for the support 
of the missionary work of the Church . 

When the Church reorganized its administration and the National Council was set up in 1919, it 
asked that the Woman's Auxiliary, instead of being auxiliary only to the Board of Missions, be made 
"The Woman's Auxiliary to the National Council of the Protestant Episcopal Church in the United 
States of America." This change widened and increased the responsibilities and opportunities open to 
the women of the Church. 

In recognition of the fact that women were a part of the Church, not just an auxiliary to it, in 1958 
National Council created the General Division of Women's Work, the executive body on the national 
level, representing all of the work of all the women of the Church. 

Following this action the Triennial Meeting recommended "Episcopal Churchwomen" as the 

designation for the women of a diocese, and "The Women of Church," as the name in the 

parish. 

The history of women's work in the Diocese of North Carolina dates back to 1881 when the Diocese 
of North Carolina was the whole area of the state. The Rt. Rev. Theodore Lyman, Bishop of the 
Diocese, asked Mrs. John Wilkes of Charlotte to form a Diocesan organization of Woman's Auxiliary 
branches. In 1882 at the Diocesan Convention in Tarboro, representatives from six branches with a 
total membership of one hundred were organized as the Woman's Auxiliary of the Diocese of North 
Carolina to the Board of Missions, thereby becoming one of twenty-six organized in the national 
church prior to 1883. 

In April 1959 at the Annual Meeting in Winston -Salem, a resolution was adopted changing the 
name of the organization to "Episcopal Churchwomen of the Diocese of North Carolina." It was sug- 
gested that, for uniformity, parish branches be known as "Episcopal Churchwomen of 

Parish."

DEVOTIONAL LIFE 

Mrs. Ben B. Everett, Jr.

MISSIONS 

Mrs. Wilson Moser 
12 Pine Tree Road, Salisbury 28144 

The purpose of this office is to encourage churchwomen to participate in the world-wide mission of 
the Church. 

Information and suggestions to help attain this purpose follow. 

1. Pray daily for the world-wide mission of the Church. 

2. A good policy is to divide the Branch budget 50% inside the parish and 50% outside. Give to 
missions through your Diocesan pledge. This will enable the churchwomen on the Diocesan level to ac- 
cept larger priority projects, thereby accomplishing more in a given area. Suggested projects will be 
sent upon request. 

3. Remember especially the missionaries from the Diocese of North Carolina. Pray for them by 
name and write to them periodically. Participate in the Missionary Christmas Gift for both active and 
retired missionaries from this Diocese. The total money collected is divided equally among them. 
Please see that the check is made payable to Mrs. Oscar Cranz, Secretary (see address above) and mailed 
to her by NOVEMBER 15. 

4. By the action of the 1981 Annual Meeting, the 1982 Epiphany offering will go to The Rev. Mark 
Boesser in Wasilla, Alaska. Please encourage your branch to seriously consider participating in this of- 
fering. Send it to your Diocesan Treasurer. 

5. Many branches have expressed interest in assigning a specific missionary to each convocation. 
The purpose is to concentrate their monies, prayers, etc. , on one or two people and become more close- 
ly involved with them. Below are the 1981-1982 assignments: 

NORTHEAST —J ocelyn Gordon, The Rev. James Fortune 
CENTRAL -The Rev. Mark Boesser, Miss Rachel Wolff 
NORTHWEST — Mrs. Henry Simmonds, Miss Catherine Jones 
SOUTHWEST — Mrs . Henry Chapman, Jane and Archer Torrey 
SANDHILLS -Stuart and Everall Peele 

6. Remember that mission begins at home and extends throughout the world. Christian Social 
Relations, United Thank Offering, Church Periodical Club, College Work, and Missions are in- 
separable in that each offers opportunities for mission and ministry to people. Every churchwoman can 
participate. Please do your part to make this a successful year.

CHRISTIAN EDUCATION 

Mrs. Joel K. Bourne 
618 N. Howard Circle, Box 1594, Tarboro 27886 

Christian Education is growth in our knowledge and experience of Christ. Thus, planning programs 
for chapter meetings in each parish should involve the women totally— should inspire them, energize 
them, direct them to Christ and His work. The programs can be tremendously varied. WORSHIP is a 
primary part and can BE the program. STUDY of the Bible, Old Testament and New, with all the 
commentaries available, inevitably reveals TRUTH. Movies, cassettes, and film strips are invaluable 
aids to Bible study. DISCUSSION groups with Bible reading can be the program. Study of the Propos- 
ed Book of Common Prayer— its lectionary, its church seasons, its new services— can be the program. 
PROJECTS to carry on His work can be the program. Each chapter OFFICER can be responsible for a 
program on her area of Episcopal Churchwomen's work. So, also, can be the Diocesan officers and they 
are willing to come. NEEDS in your life, in your church, in your community can be the genesis of pro- 
grams. Your PRIEST, senior and junior wardens, altar guild, Episcopal Young Churchmen advisors, 
Sunday School teachers can be the program. The HISTORY of your particular parish — its old 



36 



records, its memorial gifts, its architecture, its leaders, its cemetery— can be a fascinating study. And, 
finally, FELLOWSHIP— pure fun for newcomers, the newly confirmed, for ones we want to thank or 
honor (such as our parish's senior citizens, its leaders, our high school and college graduates), for 
ourselves — can BE the program. 

The Rev. Messrs. Stephen Harris, of the Church of the Good Shepherd, Raleigh, and Harrison 
Simons, P.O. Box 194, Oxford 27565, are the diocese's own Christian Education leaders who can be 
immensely helpful to you. Mr. Simons has begun an Episcopal bookstore in Oxford that has invaluable 
resources. 



THE UNITED THANK OFFERING 

Mrs. John Landi 
Rt. 4, West Lake Trail, Mebane 27302 

The United Thank Offering is a practical day-by-day expression of thanksgiving in prayer and 
almsgiving through the use of our "Blue Boxes." The contents of the Blue Boxes are collected by each 
congregation during a service twice a year— on the Feast of the Annunciation (March 25) and St. Luke's 
Day (October 18), or as close to those dates as is convenient. The total Diocesan Offering is sent to New 
York. Disbursement of the National Offering is allocated for one year at the Triennial Meeting of the 
Churchwomen, and during the intervening years by the National United Thank Offering Committee. 
This committee is elected at Triennial on nominations from each Province. 

Grants may be requested by any congregation and must be approved by the Diocesan Bishop who 
has application forms. Traditionally the offering has been used mainly for missionary projects and to 
support women in special areas of the ministry of the Church. Funds are granted only to projects for 
which no other money is available through any part of the Church budget. No administrative costs are 
taken at any level from the offering. 

THE RESPONSIBILITIES OF THE U.T.O. TREASURER 

PARISH OR MISSION 

1 . Be thoroughly informed about the United Thank Offering. Use your Blue Box and Thank Offer- 
ing prayers regularly. 

2. Provide Blue Boxes, envelopes and any information which may seem particularly pertinent to 
your Churchwomen. These are available from New York and you should receive order forms from the 
Diocesan UTO Treasurer. 

3. Request time, when appropriate, for a program on the United Thank Offering, stressing that the 
United Thank Offering is a daily expresion of love and gratitude and not a special twice a year "collec- 
tion." Filmstrips are available from Convocation Treasurers and the Diocesan United Thank Offering 
Treasurer will be delighted to help. 

4. Attend Spring Planning Day workshop. 

5. Arrange the Ingathering services with your rector or vicar. Share with him all information you 
have about the United Thank Offering. It is very helpful if he will announce the Ingathering ahead of 
time and will also announce it in your bulletin. Often he will preach a "Thank Offering" sermon. Ask 
him if you may distribute envelopes in the pews to encourage participation by the whole congregation. 
Some congregations send envelopes with newsletters. 

6. Please consolidate the offering in one check if possible and send it to the Diocesan United Thank 
Offering Treasurer immediately, made payable to "United Thank Offering." Late contributions may 
be sent at any time and will be placed in a savings account to draw interest. 

7. The Diocesan Alms Basin is available to any congregation for their Ingathering. Please ask the 
Diocesan United Thank Offering Treasurer to arrange this. 

8. Do not hesitate to ask for any additional information. Many Episcopalians, both clerical and lay, 
really do not understand the spiritual and practical essence of this offering. Do not be afraid of repeti- 
tion— those who understand will appreciate it; those who do not, may learn. 



37 



CONVOCATION 

Keep UTO films and mail them to branches on request. 

DIOCESAN 

1. Be available to Branches to help them learn more about the United Thank Offering; attend all 
Diocesan ECW Board Meetings, conduct workshops, keep in touch with provincial and national 
representatives to acquire needed information. 

2. Receive Ingathering monies from branches and send to the National Treasurer; keep accurate 
records of each church and send an annual financial report to the ECW Diocesan Treasurer, and 
general reports for the Annual Meeting, Yearbook and THE COMMUNICANT. Send spring and fall let- 
ters to branches with news, reminders and information regarding Ingatherings. 

3. Cooperate with the Diocesan ECW President in planning The United Thank Offering Eucharist 
at Annual Meeting and consult with the celebrant, or whoever plans the service, regarding the offertory 
prayer. Arrange for the collection and for convocation vouchers to be presented. 

4. Be responsible for the Alms Basin when it is requested by branches. 

5. Serve on Diocesan Finance Committee. 



CHRISTIAN MINISTRIES AND COLLEGE WORK 

Sally Schindel Cone 
806 Country Club Drive, Greensboro 27408 

The essential idea in planning our goals for Christian Ministries and College Work is contained in 
the phrase, the ministry of the laity. As defined in The Book of Common Prayer, this ministry of lay 
persons is ". . .to represent Christ and his Church; to bear witness to him wherever they may be; and, 
according to the gifts given them, to carry on Christ's work of reconciliation in the world; and to take 
their place in the life, worship, and governance of the Church." 

This explanation can help guide us in our ministry of three groups that are often overlooked in 
parish life: those who are single; those who are aging and are partially to totally homebound; and those 
who are away from their parishes attending college. 

Our diocese is working in several areas to provide opportunities for single and working women to 
meet together and in this way gain spiritual and intellectual stimulation during hours convenient to 
them. Through this office we can also attempt to find way to further involve this group on parish levels 
as well. 

The ECW Committee on Aging, as well as the Diocese of North Carolina's Task Force on Aging, is 
focusing upon an area of responsibility already being assumed by some parishes. In keeping abreast 
with these committees, this office can encourage a sharing of information and ideas to aid in expanding 
our participation among individual parishes. 

We realize that maintaining a relationship with Episcopal college students is difficult at best and that 
methods and degrees of success vary from parish to parish. If possible, it is important to help students 
keep in touch by sending them newsletters, subscriptions to "The Foreward", or by emphasizing other 
methods of recognition that work in individual parishes. 

For students who come to local colleges, the most successful method may be to work through the 
resident chaplain and to attempt to involve the students themselves in particular phases of parish ac- 
tivities as those needs and opportunities arise. 

In summary, through local branches, as well as on the diocesan level, it is important to broaden the 
base for these areas of ministry— areas where women's gifts place them in unique positions to learn, 
lead, and serve through understanding, concern, encouragement, and love. 



38 



PROMOTION 

Mrs. John Gregory 
5601 Westfield Drive, Greensboro 27410 

The essential duty of the Diocesan Promotion Secretary is to promote the ideas and activities of the 
Episcopal Churchwomen. It is her duty to keep all churchwomen informed of things to come and to 
report on noteworthy activities which have taken place. She is available to assist branch officers in pro- 
moting individual programs as well as diocesan sponsored ones. The effectiveness of this job depends 
somewhat on her being informed by local churchwomen about their endeavors. 

The Episcopal Churchwomen of North Carolina is a very vital organization, offering many oppor- 
tunities for spiritual growth to all its members and prospective members. Communicating this message 
is the task of all, but particularly the task of promotional workers. In keeping with this, the following 
suggestions are offered: 

1 . Convocation Chairmen and Branch Presidents should be certain that someone is responsible for 
the work of informing the other members of what is going on in their organizations. 

2. Make effective use of your church bulletins and /or newsletters to inform members about coming 
events and activities. 

3. Assist other branch officers with your ideas and imagination in promoting the ECW and in pro- 
moting their respective programs. 

4. Establish a good relationship with your local press and solicit their aid in promoting your work. 

5. Inform other women in the Diocese of any activities or projects which you feel are outstanding by 
reporting them in The COMMUNICANT. 

6. Contact your Diocesan Secretary for any assistance she may be able to give you in carrying out the 
above suggestions. 



ALTAR WORK AND SERVICE OF EXCHANGE 

Mrs. Paul Wright, Jr. 
3807 Churchill Circle, Hope Valley, Durham 27707 

Altar Work is rewarding and meaningful service in all of its phases. Anything done in God's service 
and to His Glory should be performed with love and to the best of our ability. Parishes have different 
needs and customs. No attempt will be made to standardize. The object is to increase the efficiency 
and devotion of each Guild in carrying out the wishes of the Rector. Our Lord accepted the ministry of 
faithful women during His earthly life. We pray that He accept and bless the work which our Guilds 
undertake in the care of their Sanctuaries. 

In the individual branches the Altar Guild Chairman is not always an officer of the ECW. In fact, 
there may not be a specific person to whom these responsibilities would be delegated. In such cases, I 
would appreciate those having access to this hand book assuring that the proper person, Rector or Altar 
Guild Chairman be given this information, so they may avail themselves of the services of this office. I 
encourage your correspondence on any help needed. 

This office will provide help in: 

1. Setting up procedures for Altar work. 

2. Teaching the skills necessary for maintaining a Sacristy, and preparing for various Services of 
Worship. 

3. Specific hints and helps for the various housekeeping problems which arise. 

4. Encouraging more ladies to participate in the activities of the Guild, and those in the Guild to 
refresh their enthusiasm for their work. 

5 . Suggestions for services which the Guilds may provide other than the traditional housekeeping 
duties. 

6. In circulating items not currently in use by one Parish to a Parish or Mission where there is a 
need. 

7. In obtaining printed aids such as books and catalogues for Altar needs. 



39 



ALTAR GUILD PRAYERS 

For use before work: 

Almighty God, grant we beseech Thee, that we may handle Holy things with reverence, and per- 
form our work with such faithfulness and devotion, that it may rise with acceptance before Thee and 
obtain Thy blessing; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

For use after work: 

O God , bless and accept the work of my hands and all who minister to Thee in the care and adorn- 
ment of Thy Sanctuary. Bless and hallow them who love the beauty of Thy House, that Thy Holy 
Name may be glorified; through Jesus Christ, Our Lord. Amen. 



CHURCH PERIODICAL CLUB 

Mrs. Robert Herford 
917 Meadow Lane, Henderson 27536 

The Church Periodical Club, serving the ministry of the printed word since 1888, is the only 
organization in the Episcopal Church devoted solely to supplying free printed material to those who 
cannot otherwise obtain it. Its steadily expanding, adaptable program is unique among the churches in 
giving free materials to responsible recipients they themselves specify. It is supported by contributions 
and most of its work is done by volunteers. 

CPC functions on all levels, nationally, world-wide, locally— in parishes, communities, dioceses. 
Religious, educational, technical, recreational books, magazines, leaflets are provided for the most 
remote places and for nearest neighbors. Needs that exceed local resources are referred to National 
Books Fund. 

This fund is directed by a committee of experienced volunteers, meeting to evaluate each request. 
Most are granted as far as funds permit. National Books Fund projects have financed a translation of 
the Prayer Book in Malay to giving medical journals to the stations served by the S. S. Hope. 

How can CPC become alive in your Parish? 

1 . Pray for the work of CPC for guidance asking God to direct you in spreading the Good News 
with the printed word. 

2. Plan to publicize the work of CPC to all men, women and children in your parish by observing 
the first Sunday in October (CPC Sunday). 

3 . Plan to educate your parish on CPC Sunday in the importance of continuing to supply printed 
materials to people around the world. 

4. Use your parish bulletin and meetings in your parish to remind them of CPC Sunday in October. 
Use the CPC prayers at all services and meetings that week in your parish. 

In our Diocese, the CPC work is done through the Episcopal Churchwomen, headed by a Diocesan 
Director of CPC and carried out by CPC secretaries in the branches. The Secretary of Missions could 
also serve as CPC Secretary in those churches of small membership. 

NOTES: 

All contributions should be sent to the Diocesan Director of CPC. All contributions should be made 
by check payable to Church Periodical Club. Do not remit to the Diocesan Treasurer. Enclose a memo 
showing the source so proper credit can be given. 

When your branch or parish sends a check to the National Books Fund as a memorial or as a gift to a 
Seminarian, the CPC secretary should so inform the recipient of the memorial or gift.

PRESIDENT'S CROSS 

The engraved silver Celtic cross worn by the Diocesan President during her 
term of office was a gift of Mrs. Leslie Evans in 1956. She wore the cross during 
her administration as President of the Woman's Auxiliary and presented it to 
Mrs. T. P. Thomas at her installation at Annual Meeting, in the Church of the 
Good Shepherd, Raleigh, in 1958. The back of the cross bears the inscription: 
"President, Woman's Auxiliary, Diocese of North Carolina." 



PENDULA 

The pendula is worn by all Diocesan Past -Presidents in the IV Province. It is an 
oval of gold or silver, with a Chi-Rho symbol bearing seventeen stars on the 
crossbars. The stars represent the number of Dioceses in the Province. The pen- 
dula is a gift to our Retiring Diocesan President by Dr. Philip De Wolfe, now of 
Florida, in memory of his mother, Elizabeth Owens De Wolfe. Dr. De Wolfe's 
wife, Anne, was a member of our Diocesan Executive Board in 1963 when the 
decision was made to give the pendula to retiring Diocesan Presidents. At that 
time North Carolina was the only Diocese in the Province which did not present 
one to its President. Through Dr. DeWolfe's generosity, all living Past- 
Presidents were presented with a pendula at Annual Meeting at St. Michael's 
Church, Raleigh, in 1963. Mrs. James L. Godfrey, of Chapel Hill, was the 
Diocesan President when this tradition was begun in our Diocese. 



ALMS BASIN 

The UTO Alms Basin is made of silver and gold collected from all parishes in 
the Diocese of North Carolina; an idea conceived by Mrs. B. W. Roberts. Mrs. 
Brown Patterson designed the center seal made up of gold wedding rings, pins 
and crosses donated. Mr. Louis Glasier was the ecclesiastical craftsman. It was 
dedicated by Bishop Penick at Annual Meeting, April 20, 1955, in Chapel Hill. 
It is available for Spring and Fall Ingathering upon request of the UTO Secretary.
